An overdue translation 30 July 2004
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very much in the style of a traditional, comprehensive German Handbuch. Undoubtedly, there are English-speaking chemists who have waited years for a translation of this famous German text. At 2000 pages, we are presented with a massive amount of reference material. The layout of the material is very logical, at least to its audience of inoganic chemists. It has been refined for a century. I suspect that other chemists may also find it just as logical and useful.

Perhaps the only quibble is why this English version is translated from the 1995 German edition, and not from a more recent edition? But in practical terms, the point may be moot, if there are only slight differences between editions.

Awesome book! It is concise and covers almost everything in inorganic chemistry.
It is a good reference for professionals working in both chemical engineering and science, and even for environmental engineering.
