I agree Carroll and Ostlie is long, but it is the best comprehensive book on astrophysics without question, if you're planning on going into the field.  Don't think of it as a textbook to go through chapter by chapter, but rather a reference book, in which you will occasionally skim sections of to help clarify concepts.

The Book's ok, but it's really not completely transparent in terms of material. On top of that, it's just too blasted long. I don't have time to read all that material.
