I looked for an "understandable book" of NMR relaxation theory, having had Abragam (untouchably difficult), McConnell (difficult), Bakhmutov (non-hardcore), and Levitt (very well written but designed for youngsters). This book has step-by-step derivation of the Redfield master equation. I have so far read through the theory parts of this book (Chapter 6, p.158) and will continue to read the latter application parts. Although Cavanagh's chapter 5 causes sleepiness, this book has kept me awake.
