Recensie

"Indirect imaging has become the norm in studies of cataclysmic binaries and related objects - but after more than 15 years this is the first book to document the techniques in a systematic way. It is therefore extremely welcome and is indispensable reading for all users of these techniques. [...] This is a book to keep close to your desk if you are working in this area." (The Observatory, 122/1171, 2002)
