Media reviews

"The original aim [of this book] was to produce a reference textbook for those giving university level courses in the area. It is obvious that the book will meet this target and will also be extremely valuable for postgraduates and scholars interested in these materials and uses. The text will also be valuable not only for those starting industrial careers but will stimulate thought and action even by those with years of industrial experience. I recommend the book highly for its authority, clarity, practicality and as a stimulus for future work. "
