this book provides an excellent insight into the subject of physical chemistry, understandable and suitable for both beginners and experts of chemistry. Internal Journal of Biological Macromolecules, August 2006 The authors succeed brilliantly in their aim to show that deep insights into the behaviour of biological systems can be gained by applying the principles of physical chemistry. I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it without reservation to teachers and students alike. Chemistry World, January 2006
