"This book is the first to envision the field of magnetism in its entirety." - CERN Courier
"This is a highly readable and thorough account of models of magnetism, particularly applied to metallic magnets, that will be of great use to graduate students and experts in the field alike. The appendices are very thorough and contain a lot of helpful information, and the panels are well used. The exercises at the end of each chapter are short and pithy and a good addition." - Stephen Blundell, University of Oxford
