"This presentation of the authors most successful results is vital for the understanding of the current status of the science of this outstanding class of materials among intermetallic alloys." (Zeitschrift für Kristallographie, 2004, Band 219)
"The book presents a fresh understanding of quasi-crystals.... In the last five years, more than ten books with a similar title have been published and the present book is the only one that completely includes the newest results." (An Pang Tsai, National Institute for Materials Science, Tsukuba (Japan), ChemPhysChem, 2004, Vol. 5, No. 1)
