Editorial Reviews

Review

This is, quite simply, the best…textbook on polymer science I have ever read. Why such strong praise? Because the writing style is colloquial…and the whole book screams of the authors' tremendous enthusiasm for the subject…. The authors are clearly experienced teachers.
- Chemistry in Britain (The Royal Society of Chemistry)

The topics covered are treated in considerable detail and generally with high credibility. [T]he writing style and format are quite accessible to the reader.
- Robert Burford, Department of Materials Science, University of NSW in Materials Australia

The book is very strong on experimental techniques (especially spectroscopic techniques) for polymer characterization…. Recommended.
- Nicholas A. Peppas, School of Chemical Engineering, Purdue University

…deep and understandable view of specific aspects of the chemistry and physics of polymers.

- Revista de Plasticos Modernos (Journal of Modern Plastics)

Michael and Paul present a comprehensive view of polymer science at a level suitable for an advanced undergraduate or graduate level course. The text is very readable, and their sly sense of humor enlivens the reading. I have used it in one course that I taught and both the students and I found it to be very useful.

Excellent book for polymer basics and fundamental ideas. Very easy to follow and self-study. Lots of problems at the end of each chapter with varying difficulty level. Highly recommended for beginners in polymers!
