"…a welcome addition to any reference shelf. Experienced researchers as well as novices will turn to it often to learn about imaging, while for students it provides a gentle yet thorough introduction, appropriate at either the undergraduate or graduate level, to a set of techniques that are used in as many wide-ranging disciplines as microscopy itself. Highly recommended, the book is extremely readable and captures the style of an experienced, knowledgeable teacher."
