“This book is the result of many years of research and practical experience, and overall provides not only useful infomration, but also a sense of the author’s character that interested readers may also appreciate.”  (Materials World, 1 July 2012)

"It is not necessary to follow all the intricate mathematical treatment of matrices, Fourier summation, statistics and so on, in order to derive benefit from the clearly written text and the good range of worked examples". (Chemistry World, 1 January 2011)
