"The authors have achieved a very nice mix of theoretical discussions and the use of equations, graphs and tables to make points and give comparisons. They also use photographs well and do no over-populate pages with photograph after photograph. Overall, they have made this into a readable book and also a good initial reference book." (Chromatographia, 22 January 2011)
"The book is comprehensive and clearly written. There is a good balance among the different topics dealt with as well as among the theoretical background, the description of the miniaturized systems and their practical applications." (Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Jan - June 2010)
