'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
