I looked through it and recognized a lot of familiar ideas in my hour or so run through of it but this would really deserve a thorough treatment of physics study as it also includes exercises as any physics textbook would frankly it w This is a physics textbook geared towards upper-level undergraduates of physics.

Not exactly pleasure reading. The book lacks a lot of illustration in some points likeNeutrino decoupling and CMB fluctuations and also it depends from the early beginning in specific Cosmological model for density contribution Benchmark model which leads me to confuse the result the book got with the result I drive for more easier or illustrative model Single component universe mainly.
