From the reviews of the second edition:
"In this updated and fully revised second edition, the authors provide the newcomer and the experienced practitioner with a balanced and comprehensive insight into all important methods and aspects of Differential Scanning Calorimetry ... . Emphasis is placed on modern evaluation techniques, instrumentation ... . The information enables the research scientist, the analyst and the experienced laboratory staff to choose the most suitable equipment, to apply DSC methods successfully ... ." (Chimie Nouvelle, Vol. 22 (85), 2004)
"Recently, with the invention of modulated temperature DSC (TMDSC) techniques, there have been many advances in the instrumentation, computation and interpretation. The authors present a thorough discussion of DSC for the specialist in this second edition. ... . The strength of the book is the thorough treatment of the theory. ... This useful book provides a review of most aspects of DSC in the one volume. This book is a welcome addition to the library of DSC theory and practice available." (R. A. Shanks, Chemistry in Australia, January/February, 2004)
"Each of the first six of the seven chapters of the book is a fairly well-rounded presentation of the types of apparatus available, the methods of calibration and theories ... . These chapters are worthy of attention by both present and potential users of DSC. ... The last chapter deals with specific applications ... . This well-arranged book will help to further an understanding of the various facets of the technique and should promote its application to new problems." (S. L. Bark, Chromatographia, Vol. 60 (11-12), December, 2004)
