"For many applications on the topics of this journal, the absolute unique presentation by Cohen-Tannoudji of his research field will be most valuable." Laser and Particle Beams "The production quality is very high; even the smallest symbols are easily readable, and some papers are reproduced in color. The clarity of the exposition, the wide range of topics, and the logic of the presentation make this a valuable teaching reference. This book is highly recommended for physicists and students working on atoms in intense laser fields, laser cooling and trapping and Bose-Einstein condensation." Optics & Photonics News
