If this reviewer had to choose one book as a reference for using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, or one course resource to introduce (NMR) spectroscopy, this would be it. (CHOICE, December 2005) "...a comprehensive text for graduate students, although the book would also make an interesting reference for an organic chemistry library." (Journal of Natural Products, October 2005) From reviews of previous editions: "Another paperback that I would advise students to buy...[it] can be recommended for general purchase by all chemists."
