Low Temperature Physics is unique in the breadth of topics covered in one text and the extent to which it emphasizes the interconnectedness of various subjects, which is frequently lost in this age of specialization. Christian Enss and Siegfried Hunklinger have written an extremely readable book... [T]he book treats well the classical topics of the field of low-temperature physics, and it does an excellent job in about 550 pages... [M]uch is to be learned from Enss and Hunklinger's book. And students who read Low Temperature Physics will benefit from it.
