    I've check the recommended Physics reading list but couldnt find what I was looking for, which is a book on the evolution of stars. I've a GCSE Astronomy textbook which covers it in little detail, and I've check amazon, but everything wwas £30 plus, except for this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Birth-Death-...300893&sr=1-13

    (Incidentally, anyone read it? Any good?)

    So does anyone know of a good book on this that;s not too expensive? Thanks!

    One of the oldest but still good is the one by my old lecturer at Sussex - Roger Tayler - the structure and evolution of the stars

    Thanks - it's a fair amount cheaper than most of the others they have on amazon. I'm going to check my local library this weekend and see if they have anything for loan...
