The content is comprehensive, covering symmetry operations, stereographic projection, application to X-ray diffraction, group theory, as well as spectroscopy ... the book shines with instructional discussions of several problem sets ... I find reason to recommend the book ... I am glad to see it on my bookshelf (Angewandte Chemie International Edition,)
This book successfully combines a thorough treatment of molecular and crystalline symmetry with a simple and informal writing style. By means of familiar examples the author helps to provide the reader with those conceptual tools necessary for the development of a clear understanding of what are often regarded as 'difficult' topics. (Christopher Hammond, University of Leeds)
This book should tell you everything you need to know about crystal and molecular symmetry. Ladd adopts an integrated approach so that the relationships between crystal symmetry, molecular symmetry and features of chemical interest are maintained and reinforced. The theoretical aspects of bonding and symmetry are also well represented, as are symmetry-dependent physical properties and the applications of group theory. The comprehensive coverage will make this book a valuable resource for a broad range of readers. (Alexander Blake, School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham)
I marvel at the comprehensive detail and rigour ... I see this book becoming essential reading, if not prescribed for intensive study. (Jan Boeyens, University of Pretoria)
The book really shines, with clear and precise definitions given for point groups, lattices and space groups - ideal reading for any budding crystallographer who wonders what all those columns in the International tables for crystallography are for. (Chemistry World)
