MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Everyone using scanning electron microscopy with EDX and anyone who is not the expert will thoroughly appreciate this novel book with flashcard-like spectra for 182 minerals. ... this useful work is a true hands-on practical guide particularly to anyone (student or professional) working occasionally or with limited experience with SEM-EDX. For those it will quickly become an almost indispensable reference ... . It is ... as such, most welcome and will certainly find many friends." (Environmental Geology, Vol. 49 (6), 2006)

"This book is a useful addition to reference works kept in geological SEM and EPMA labs that routinely use EDS detectors for phase identification. It provides a welcome update to the SEM Petrology Atlas ... . The book provides a branching `key' to identifying an unknown spectrum. ... There is also a searchable index by mineral type and by name. ... This is an excellent and useful book for its intended audience. ... I highly recommend this book." (John Fournelle, American Mineralogist, Vol. 92, 2007)
