The reviews below are pretty stupid; so I thought I would write my own to counter-balance things a bit. The rating of 5 stars is to offset the 1-star rating below. I would give this book a true rating of 4 stars out of 5, and just for the sake of comparison, I would rate very few NMR using 5 stars. Therefore, this book is in the top layer.

Michael Mehring does a very good job at presenting a unified treatment of NMR, EPR and NQR all within the same treatise. He uses the very convenient notation of superoperators, which can be easily coded into a computer program if needed. It also makes the algebra look very neat. He makes liberal use of irreducible tensor operators throughout, as this is the natural language of NMR (with a strong truncating interaction such as Zeeman). The book covers everything from complex NMR spectra, to relaxation theory using the projector method.

It is far easier to read than Abragam's book or Ernst's book. The downsides are that very few experimental results are presented. The plots are mostly simulated spectra, and it would be better to show real results (as in Abragam's book). Also, it does not contain as much of the physics as Abragam's or Slichter's books. Therefore, it may be considered incomplete in that sense. I would argue, in Mehring's favor, that this was not the primary intent of the book. He instead does a wonderful job at unifying all forms of magnetic resonances into a single treatise. And for this, he deserves 4 stars.

For those who are sad to see Mehring's 1983 textbook out of print can rejoice in the fact that this new book contains much of what was in the original book, minus all the typos. Thus, it is refreshing to see this updated presentation.

I was very disappointed to discover that I was forced to pay ca. 6 Euros in Customs charges on the spot when my book was delivered. I have been ordering books from the USA to Germany for 6 years now and this is the first time a company has completed the customs declaration in such as way that I have had to pay extra charges. I am very disappointed at this and was not expecting it at all.

The delivery time was 4-5 weeks, which considering what I paid finally is also too long.

I will tell you this: for those people out there who love German people's names, Volker Achim Weberruß's name will not disappoint. And his book... ach, his book-- I will just say this: it lives up to his name.
That is what I will say.
Additionally, I will say that reading this book, you feel ravished by the technical command Volker Achim Weberruß has over his computational domain-- you feel like a young child, in the hands of a brutish master. You feel like a life raft cradled in a tempest-loving sea. You are at his mercy.
Weberruß is the Mayor of Science,, folks.
I will also say this: I was a little disappointed in the appendix, though. Not quite meaty enough, for my taste, and I found several notable ommissions ("hyponautical quadraticism" was mentioned on pages 133 and 411, though the topic was apparently not substantial enough to warrant an appendixical mention). But for that I fault the editor, not Volker Achim Weberruß.
Volker Achim Weberruß is the champion of the history of science of the universe.
Object-Oriented Magnetic Resonance: Yes!
