Delightful introduction to Superconductivity, 30 May 2011
Blundell is superb once again. You really enjoy reading the issues, stories and anecdotes related with superconductivity as well as the people have been involved in its discovery and development.
It gives a very good account on the topic without any need for complicated details and equations. I think that when one is studying a certain topic in physics, this kind of background (historical context, anecdotes and important implications, how and why things happened as they did) should be worked out too, specially during the undergraduate studies in order to keep the motivation. The format results into a bit too small, but the content is really worthy :)
