“While the back cover also states the book is a compact and selfcontained treatment suitable for crystallography courses in physics, chemistry, materials science and biology, I believe it is especially useful for materials science students.” (Crystallography, 10 April 2012)
“Although, as a solid state chemist, I have taught crystallography directed to structure determination and crystal chemistry, I found this book extremely valuable and will revise and expand some of the chapters for my lectures. As an introduction to the “Basic Concepts of Crystallography” this book is recommended to any student in science and engineering.” (American Chemical Society, 1 September 2012)
"This book concisely covers an overview of the theory of crystallography without particularly indulging in very heavy, complicated mathematic:  the essentials are presented well." (Chemistry World, 1 January 2012)"This book concisely covers an overview of the theory of crystallography without particularly indulging in very heavy, complicated mathematics  the essentials are presented well ... There are good clear explanations of the basic symmetry elements, which all lead on logically to point groups, Bravis lattices and atomic packing  along with all of the pictorial aids in the book, which are neatly drawn, this helps to offer elegant explanations of the subjects covered."
