Format: Hardcover
This book is full of very helpful figures, tables and examples. The format is very structured and cohesive in most chapters. Compared to other textbooks in the field of MSE, this is among the very best. There is no superfluous information or tidbits to maintain the readers interest, and for that I think it's hard to read. Also, it would be nice to see a new edition brought out with mention of how some of the science has evolved over the past 12 years and some fields of interest that are missing, namely the addition of thin-film science.

Can't profess love for this as it is a required textbook but it serves its purpose and is fine. Came on time and that is important.

By Michael on February 10, 2014
Format: Hardcover
If you are an undergraduate who has absolutely NO background in materials science (i.e. only taken freshman chemistry), this text may be difficult to follow at first. Callister would probably be a better option. However, if you are committed to the science or someone who has taken introductory classes in materials and wishes to refer back to an introductory text a little more rigorous than Callister, this is hard to beat. As a PhD student in materials science, this text has proven to be invaluable in order to provide refresher conceptual knowledge for more advanced courses in this huge field.

This book is required for our Chemistry of Materials class at school. I found this book to have a lot of information in it... but it was hard to follow. Many times the book did not explain what we were supposed to learn for the class. I thought it was a hard book to read
