From the Back Cover
Spin Dynamics: Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance is a comprehensive and truly modern introduction, written to appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students, and also active researchers in NMR, spectroscopy and quantum physics. The book focuses on those essential principles and concepts needed for a thorough understanding of the subject, rather than its practical aspects. The quantum theory of nuclear magnets is presented within a strong physical framework, supported by a large number of figures, helping to make the text accessible to a wide range of readers.
Spin Dynamics, Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance assumes only a basic knowledge of complex numbers and matrices, and provides the reader with numerous worked examples and problems to encourage student understanding. With the explicit aim of carefully developing the subject from the beginning, the text starts with coverage of quarks and nucleons and carries through to a detailed explanation of several important NMR experiments, including NMR imaging, COSY and NOESY.
Written for undergraduate and postgraduate students taking a first course in NMR spectroscopy and for those needing a up-to-date account of the subject, this multi-disciplinary book will appeal to chemical, physical, material, life, medical, earth and environmental scientists. The detailed physical insights will also make the book of interest for experienced spectroscopists and NMR researchers.
Spin Dynamics: Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance:
* Is an accessible and carefully written introduction, designed to help students fully understand this complex and dynamic subject.
* Takes a multi-disciplinary approach, focusing on basic principles and concepts rather than the more practical aspects.
* Presents a strong pedagogical approach throughout, with emphasis placed on individual spins to aid understanding.
* Includes numerous worked examples, problems, further reading and additional notes and appendices containing more advanced material.

The only defect is that my copy is lacking some pages at the end.
just about anyone with high school math background. I wish more advanced physics
topics were handled this way.
Despite some of its shortcomings, this book as a whole is a good book for people who want to understand NMR beyond Keeler's. I am not aware of any books that deal with NMR at this level and do an better job. It does a satisfactory job in presenting more advanced mathematically techniques in NMR. However, I do feel that its presentation is not as good as Keeler's and does not deserve a 5-star rating. As far as I understand, it also has a few important typos.
