Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was one of the most brilliant physicists of the 20th Century. Most known as being a pioneer in the area of combining Astronomy and Physics, and for discovering the 'Chandrasekhar Limit'; the upper limit of the mass of a white dwarf star. Won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1983. Also the author of many books:

In Order of Publishing:
Introduction to the Study of Stellar Structure - 1939 - Stellar Dynamics
Principles of Stellar Dynamics - 1942 - Stellar Dynamics
Radiative Transfer - 1950 - Radiative Transfer (obviously)
Hydrodynamic and Hydromagnetic Stability - 1961 - Subject same as Title
Ellipsoidal Figures of Equilibrium - 1968 - Figures of Equilibrium (WAY beyond me)
The Mathematical Theory of Black Holes - 1983 - Black Holes and Quantum Theory

Chandrasekhar is a very interesting and deep fellow. I recomend any of his books for anyone interested in these subjects, The Mathematical Theory of Black Holes is very interesting but you have to know a lot of math to understand it (it lost me very quickly.)
Introduction to the Study of Stellar Structure is also good and much less mathematical, but still difficult to read nonetheless...
