This is a very well presented and well made book, covering a range of topics I needed, where other books had either glossed over them or were not to be found. It is written in a very easy to understand language requiring only an undergraduate level of knowledge in physics or the area of physics you are interested in. Many topics which would be considered challenging without prior knowledge are explained.

All in all, a very good book on a topic which is difficult to find in textbooks. I would recommend this as a useful accompaniment to understanding solid-state physics from a more fundamental levels.

In short: An easy read for a non-specialist with excellent use of diagrams and broad range of topics. Some complex maths, but not beyond an accompanying maths textbook, if required.

More detail: The book starts off with an excellent [mostly worded] discussion on the fundamental nature of light (Maxwell equations, wave nature of light, quantum mechanics principles etc.) which provide a perfect start point, and even if you know it already, serve as a very useful reminder of basic concepts as well as a good reference for more complex concepts introduced later in the book.

From cover to cover it works at a brilliant pace, provided the reader has a reasonable knowledge of… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustratingly Poor!, 19 Oct 2010
OK, so instantly most people will compare this to COD, and instantly, for those that have played it, it fails. The visuals are impressive in terms of graphics, but at no time is there something as awe-inspiring as when you come running out of the bunker to see the capital building ablaze in modern warefare 2.

The single player campaign fails for many reasons, firstly, BUGS. I played a level where I had to suppress a turret while some other guys took it out, seems easy enough, I got a bit over confident and subsequently died, OK, it reloaded at a checkpoint and I tried again. I'm not even joking, I fired over a 1000 rounds at the thing and nothing happened, I still got shot,… Read more
