Review

To miss out on books like this is to miss out on a grasp of the astounding nature of the universe, (Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian)

This compact book is a wonderful source of information on antimatter and offers us a meticulously researched account of the nature, properties and applications of the often overlooked entities in the fantastic antiworld around us. (Chemistry World)
