I'm looking for comprehensive review of the BEC-BCS crossover, both from a theoretical point of view, and from a experimental one. Even something at textbook level, but exhaustive, would be OK, but I can't find this topic on the Condensed Matter Theory books I use (Altland, Annett).

In particular I know that some quantities related to the system are more BCS-like in the crossover, while some other are more BEC-like: also a theory vs. experiments review would be greatly useful.

Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

I recently started reading this book:

So far I like the organization and pace. But judging by the table of contents it appears to be very detailed and thorough. It is, however, a monograph. But the style is pretty close to a textbook. Plus it has around 150 references at the end of each chapter; I like that.
