Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been a major growth field over the past 20 years. They have spawned several targeted missions and are now poised to play a key role in multi-messenger astronomy. This book is a go-to guide for those starting in the field of GRB research. This will largely be PhD students starting in the field, but may increasingly be those who need to learn about GRBs for a specific project. For example, new optical (e.g. LSST) to radio (e.g. SKA and its pathfinders) wide field surveys may begin to find "orphan" GRBs, that is bursts found by their afterglows without a gamma-ray trigger, and so these are discussed explicitly. The book is useful to researchers working in these areas who suddenly find themselves faced with something that looks a lot like a GRB.
