From the reviews:

"The editors have done a good job in making the various chapters quite readable and most of the chapters are well written on a level that will be accessible to most readers. … As is usually the case with Springer books, these volumes have been beautifully printed, illustrated, and nicely bound for long term durability." (Gary J. Long & Fernande Grandjean, Physicalia Magazine, Vol. 29 (4), 2007)
