Book on Black Holes, Strings, AdS/CFT

In summary, the speaker is looking for a book similar to Susskind's "An Introduction To Black Holes, Information And The String Theory Revolution: The Holographic Universe" but less condensed. They are open to suggestions and hope for a book that explains the same concepts in a more pedagogical way.

Hello,
I would really like a book like Susskind's "An Introduction To Black Holes, Information And The String Theory Revolution: The Holographic Universe" but not so condensed.
If you have anything to suggest please do so. Also, if you know of any book that contains any part of the above book in a pedagogical manner, please feel free to suggest it.
Thanks.
