This book serves as a good introduction to the physics of pulsars by explaining the subject matter in simple terms which are understandable to both undergraduate physics students and also the general public.
On the Pulsar links together ideas about physics, informatics and biology, and contains many original examples, problems and solutions.
It starts with simple examples about the regular structures that are possible in strong magnetic fields and the author then suggests that special conditions on the pulsar can result in some forms of self-organization.
It will also make a valuable teaching guide.
