This book is an excellent resource of up-to-date information on lithium ion battery (LIB) materials. The book content is well organized and covers most of the aspects of LIB materials. Each chapter is thoroughly prepared by internationally recognized experts in their respective fields. Most of the chapters include an overview of the development of specific components, and authors' own research advances as well. This well-written and comprehensive book will attract a broad range of readers in both the scientific community and the public. --Andy X. Sun, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada
