Reviews

"This book provides a welcome slant on molecular symmetry, for those who worry that rigid ball and stick point group arguments to ignore the geometrical distortions accompanying molecular vibrations. In summary, this book is welcome, first as an illuminating graduate text and also as an addition to the shelves of anyone who is responsible for teaching molecular symmetry at whatever level." -- Mark Child; Chemistry World, March 2005 "This book is of primary importance in training new scientists in the field of molecular spectroscopy and quantum chemistry, i.e. in branches of modern science which attract increasing interest nowadays. It is particularly important that reading this book helps readers to form their correct general scientific philosophy." -- Dr. Yurii N. Panchenko; Lab. of Mol. Spectroscopy, Moscow State University Winner of a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Book Award for 2005! "For more than 25 years, Molecular Symmetry and Spectroscopyand the subsequent second editionhave been this reviewer's most trusted authority and treasured references on the role of symmetry in molecular spectroscopyThe book starts with a beautifully concise yet complete review of spectroscopy and quantum mechanicsA fine balance is struck in the level of detail providedSumming up: highly recommended." - CHOICE Reviews online
