From the reviews of the second edition:

"The second edition of the famous book Grundlehren der Mathematischen Wissenschaften 325 is devoted to the mathematical theory of hyperbolic conservation and balance laws. The author is known as one of the leading experts in the field. His masterly written book is, surely, the most complete exposition in the subject of conservations laws. … the original text has been reorganized so as to streamline the exposition, enrich the collection of examples, and improve the notation. … The bibliography has been considerably expanded … ." (Evgeniy Panov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1078, 2006)

"This comprehensive book is about rigorous mathematical theory of balance and conservation laws … . The statements of theorems are carefully and precisely written. The proofs are canonical and illuminating … . This book is sure to convince every reader that working in this area is challenging, enlightening, and joyful. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about the foundations of the theory of balance and conservation laws and their generic relations to continuum physics … ." (Katarina Jegdic, SIAM Review, Vol. 48 (3), 2006)
