More of a history than an explanation
on 15 April 2012
The book presented a history of the development and discoveries of superconductivity which was interesting but not what I bought it for. If you are looking for an explanation of how or why superconductors behave as they do, this book is not for you. The Physics was a little light, generally inclomplete and sometimes unclear. The low star rating is a result of my disappointment - particularly after the excellent 'Very Short Introduction to Viruses' in the same series.
