' … an important achievement … among the book's pedagogical features are a wealth of daunting problems, a pithy glossary of intimidating terms and concrete descriptions of experiments and technological applications … it will strengthen the understanding by students and researchers for a long time to come.' Physics Today
' … an excellent introduction to the processes by which atoms and molecules become materials and how materials acquire their properties. It is beautifully organized to form the basis of a lecture course.' Science
'The present book is especially welcome at a time when we are witnessing vigorous activity in all fields concerned with 'soft' matter … It contains a thorough and detailed treatment of all the subjects and is intended also to be suitable as a reference text for active researchers … This book presents a most fortunate blend of theoretical depth and encyclopaedic grasp of phenomenology, while being written in a pedagogically sound and elegant manner … a well-written, thorough, modern book on soft condensed matter physics that I wholeheartedly recommend to everybody with an interest in this subject.' Journal of Statistical Physics
'… a thoroughly forward-looking modern book which focuses on the ever-expanding area in between traditional condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics … This is a very well written text which should prove a handy reference …'. C. C. Matthai, European Journal of Physics
