Electromagnetism books that are good

In summary, the conversation was about finding a shorter and easier to read book on the topic of Electromagnetism. The person recommended the book "Nayfeh and Brussel" as it is at a similar level to "Grant and Phillips" and has many worked examples. The person also suggested checking out the Dover Publications website for more E&M books.

I'm looking for something that covers similar material to Electromagnetism, Grant and Phillips (Manchester Physics Series), but is shorter and easier to read through - I find Grant and Phillips useful (and will buy it), but could really do with a summary/outline to build on.

Any recommendations that I can check out? :)

Thanks - one of the copies in my uni library is on loan, which has to be a good sign! Will check it out when I'm next in uni :smile:
