"...this treatise should remain the definitive one on the overall subject of superconductivity for some time. ...the level of presentation makes it suitable as a reference for graduate students as well as professional research workers....a 'must' for the library of any organization dealing in any significant way with solid-state physics. We should all be grateful to the editor of his many authors for their labors to bring this treatise to fruition."
"As a general reference work for all those engaged in the field the book is an undoubted success."
