Jason Hafner, Rice University, Houston, Texas
Pre-Publication Praise: "... the first book I reach for to remind myself of an experimental technique, or to start learning a new one. With valuable additions ..., the newest addition will be a welcome replacement for our lab's well-thumbed previous editions of BSA."
Brian King, McMaster University, Canada
Pre-Publication Praise: "... a mine of useful information ranging from tables of the properties of materials to lists of manufacturers and suppliers. This book would be an invaluable resource in any laboratory in the physical sciences and beyond."
George King, University of Manchester
Pre-Publication Praise: "... concentrating several careers' worth of equipment-building experience into a single volume-a thoroughly revised and updated edition of a 25-year-old classic.. It is a "must-have" on the shelf of every research lab."
Nicholas Spencer, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule, Zürich
Pre-Publication Praise: "This book is a unique resource for the beginning experimenter, and remains valuable throughout a scientist's career. Professional engineers I know also own and enjoy using the book."
Eric Zimmerman, University of Colorado at Boulder, Colorado
"... a fascinating and extremely useful reference work. Anyone who works with scientific apparatus will benefit from this book, undergraduate students, professors, technicians and postdocs. If you do not have one already, buy one now!"
