Treated in a fresh and practice-oriented manner, the contents of this book form an advantageous hybrid of several books on the market. The authors, who are known for their dynamic and stimulating approach, study exemplary problems before going on to solve them using the methods explained in earlier chapters.
Following an introduction, the text looks at areas of application with a critical overview of such methods as X-ray, XPS, synchrotron photoelectron spectroscopy, Auger Process, HREELS and IRIRAS, LEED, as well as sections on reactivity and dynamics at surfaces.
For surface, analytical, and catalytic chemists, physicochemists, electrochemists, materials scientists, chemical engineers, corrosion specialists.

There is nothing like colleagues' comments to recommend a book:

"..existing books on surface science are either outdated or too narrow in scope. I might adopt such a book for use in class myself." (Prof. Dr. J. W. Niemantsverdriet, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands)

"Theses are two well-suited authors to take on this task and I highly recommend that you encourage them to do it. There is a strong market for this material and I look forward to seeing the final product. Best of luck with the project." (Dr. D. Wayne Goodman, Texas A&M University, USA)

"I strongly recommend to publish the proposed book." (Prof. Dr. M. Muhler, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany)

"It's worth publishing! My students would use it." (Prof.T. Campbell, University of Washington, USA)
