Review:

`Review from previous edition "... it is not possible ... to write a review of textbooks in physical chemistry without making a comparison with the market leader in the field, Physical Chemistry by Peter Atkins."' THES March 2001

`"I am still the proud owner of a first edition of Physical Chemistry, which I bought in 1979 just after it was first published, in the third year of my chemistry course...I believe this book achieves a good balance between coverage and detail while still retaining a reasonable size...invaluable guide to physical chemistry both for teachers and students. If you are only going to own one physical chemistry textbook then this has to be the one."' Jeremy G. Frey/Education in Chemistry May 1999

`"... an excellent undergraduate textbook."' New Scientist (Inside Science), No. 79, February 1995
