"Well-written...in my opinion is now the best reference for noncrystallographers who want to know more about X-ray diffraction and the data that result from it."

I found this book extremely helpful for understanding the basic concepts of crystallography.
In crystallography it's very common to find books which deal with either a totally descriptive approach or a totally mathematical approach.
If you want to understand what crystallography is and what crystallographers do, this is the book to read.
this book will be of great use to me as a beginner in crystallography and help me with my studies.Published 4 months ago by irene ogutu
Clear and concise. Fourier transforms are kept simple, and you get babied into XRay diffraction. Would recommend this book to anyone interested in X-ray crystallography.Published 6 months ago by Donald A. Szlosek
