First Sentence
The lower limit on the size of objects which can be clearly seen with a microscope of sufficient magnifying power is set, not by optical engineering capabilities, but by the wavelength of light itself (in the range 400-700 nm). Read the first page

Format: Paperback
This book describes the method and steps used to determine crystal structure very well. It also gives a good account of symmetry groups used in crystal structure, better than my lecture notes anyway. However for the actual mathematical treatment of diffraction, this book offers too much discussion and spends a lot of text describing the maths you'll have already known if you've done A-level or Advanced Higher physics. If you're unsure of the basic CSD method and symmetry then get this book, if you do not understand the mathematics of CSD spend your money on another book.

Some reviews of this book suggest that it is not that hot. X ray takes a life time and is very involved to understand, that is why it is so specialist, but to pass degree you only need a basic understanding. Trust me I have been there too so I know this fact. This book is useful, so use it and try not to worry about long drawn out lecture notes which are rubbish anyway.Drawing is always useful in X ray as it explains things to you that words can never do and saves time.Learn the fancy stuff when you have completed the degree.

I am currently writing a thesis for my masters and this book has been fantastic for background reading regarding crystallography. Definitely worth a read, whether for a skim read to get a better understanding, or someone who needs a more detailed review.

Format: Paperback
A good genera; introduction to crystallogrpahy, much of the information from a "hands on" point of view. The maths is kept to a minimum, and it is obvious that the author (an expert in the field) is keen to pass on useful advice. Highly recommended.

great introduction 30 Aug 2000
By erik krupicka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best introduction in crystal structure analysis that I have ever seen! Due to it's limited size (and price !!) it covers the most important topics of x-ray structure analysis in an easy understandable language without boring the reader with mathematical details. You really get a good impression about what the basic principles and problems of x-crystallography are, and how the can be solved. Everybody wanting to start with x-ray structure analysis should read this book at the very beginning.

Crystallography in a Nutshell 17 Aug 2008
By Dr. Peter Muller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you want it in a nutshell then this book is for you. On less than 100 pages Clegg covers the most important basic aspects of X-ray structure determination. Bill Clegg is one of the leading figures in British X-ray crystallography and one of the best educators in the field. "Crystal Structure Determination" is a classic in its own right and a great first text to read if you think you may be interested in crystallography.

Once you got a little deeper into crystallography you may also want to read the following books (I'd recommend to read them in the order given here):
Werner Massa: Crystal Structure Determination
Jenny Glusker / Kenneth Trueblood: Crystal Structure Analysis -- A Primer
Carmelo Giacovazzo: Fundamentals of Crystallography
Peter Mueller: Crystal Structure Refinement -- A Crystallographer's Guide to SHELXL

Very good introduction 18 Nov 2009
By spumn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This text is well-written for the stated purpose of introducing chemistry students to the subject of crystal structure determination. Graduate students as well as advanced undergraduates will find this an outstanding point of entry into the field. The language is mostly very clear, but at times, Clegg presumes too much prior knowledge on the part of the reader. Still, it is a more accessible text than most, being light on mathematics, brief, and written in a (mostly) lucid style.

One specific comment, and this may seem trivial, but it is a truly unbelievable oversight on the part of the publisher: the images on pp. 14-15 are printed in literal black-and-white, not grayscale. Hence, the beginning reader may find Clegg's discussion of diffuse fringes quite confusing, as there are in fact no fringes anywhere on the page. The images look rather like a bad Xerox, which is unfortunate, since they really form a visual foundation for beginning readers.

Decent book, abysmal index 8 May 2008
By P. Novak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is a perfectly fine text. It's quite understandable and informative. I've had tremendous problems with the index, however. It consists of only one page, and it has thousands of laughable omissions. I can't believe Dr. Clegg (and associates) allowed this book to be published with such a terrible, terrible index. This is a text book, kids. It needs a thorough index.
Perfect for beginners. 2 Nov 2014
By Juan Diego Rodriguez Blanco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This short book is highly recommended if you want to learn the basics of crystal structure determination using syngle crystal X-ray diffraction. If you are starting to work on this topic, this is the perfect book for you.
