Black Hole Thermodynamics Resources?
 
Does anyone know of any good books, papers, articles, or any other resource that discuss the thermodynamics (history of, theory, current research, etc.) of black holes? Preferably something at the advanced undergraduate level.

Thanks for any advice!

Thanks for both recommendations. Winitzki's introduction seems like it gives a good overview. The Poisson text is too advanced for me though.
