This textbook is a useful supplement to someone who is well grounded in the physical principles of diffraction. A great deal of attention is given to the ins-and-outs of the mathematics under-riding various phenomena, but the physical interpretations of the mathematics are not nearly as clear. I would highly recommend this book to an individual with a working qualitative knowledge of TEM and diffraction who is seeking to better quantify his/her understanding, but would not advise someone unfamiliar with these topics to pick up this book as an introduction.
I also want to take a moment to wax poetic about the glories of Amazon. I accidentally ordered this book to my old West Philly apartment, all the way across the country from where I now reside. When I realized my error I contacted my old super and asked her to keep an eye out for the book so I could have it sent to my new home. It never appeared. Apparently the mail carrier thought it was a good idea to leave a package out on a doorstep where passerby could easily take it for further inspection later. When I called customer service and explained my plight, the representative I talked to was able to arrange to deliver me a new copy to the correct address at no additional cost. These people are wonderful and glorious and the experience has earned them my undying gratitude. Thanks again Amazon!
Often rambling; hard to get the important concepts due to the large amount of verbose text. Problems in back of chapters often hard to solve unless you are making just the right assumptions. This is too bad, since Fultz's work is often interesting and his conversational style could be nice if it was reigned in a bit.
Get Willams and Carter for all practical purposes. The book from Goodhew, Humphreys, and Beanland is less mathematically rigorous than Fultz's but much more effective at getting concepts across. Egerton's book seems to be common, but I find it to be a bit too brief for me. There are a zillion TEM/Diffraction books out there, spend an afternoon in the library and choose one that suits your learning style.
