'Dr Squires has made a very worthwhile contribution to the surprisingly small number of modern textbooks available on this subject.' New Scientist

'This is a quite invaluable book for those at, or nearing, undergraduate level.' The Times Educational Supplement

' … a distillation of the wisdom acquired through many years of undergraduate teaching and will surely establish itself as an integral feature of physics courses and associated teaching laboratories all over the world.' British Book News

This is a very good book. It struck me as being very expensive, but the content makes it a worthwhile purchase. This should be read by all physics undergrads (or below), it really is invaluable.
