From the reviews of the second edition:
"The second edition follows the first in its approach to topics but has been brought up to date – most especially by reviewing the results from five modern solar spacecraft and from the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory. … I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in how the Sun works and behaves and how that in turn impinges upon the Earth and our life here." (C. R. Kitchin, Astronomy Now, April 2007)

"Lang’s revision of his first edition … includes significant new material such as results from recent theoretical calculations, spectacular images of the sun from satellites such as TRACE and SOHO, and a clear overview of the apparent solution of the ‘solar neutrino problem.’ … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty." (T. Barker, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (9), May, 2007)
