This book takes the reader from fundamental concepts to recent research in dressed-photon science and technology—an area that has seen many exciting developments over the last two decades. One of the major goals of the book is to introduce the reader to this topic from a conceptual point of view. The authors of each chapter take great pains to motivate and explain the recent results of theoretical studies and the underlying physical principles.

The book is well written, excellently structured, and can be easily read by nanophotonics graduate students. In addition, each chapter can form the basis for a seminar course or independent study. I recommend this wonderful book to readers without hesitation.
