Hi.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am soliciting opinions for a choice of textbook in a graduate nuclear physics class. I am woefully uneducated in such things. I know of Das and Ferbel (my own textbook when I was a student), which is really not appropriate for a graduate course I think; and Sam Wong's textbook, which is old and probably way too advanced. I noticed a book "Nuclear Physics in a Nutshell" by Carlos Bertulani, does anyone know if it is any good?

The course is to cover nuclear structure (binding energy, shell model, etc), nuclear scattering theory (both low and high energy), and more modern topics like QGP, CGC, finite temperature, etc, time permitting.

I welcome comments from students and teachers alike.
