'Dr Champness has mangaged to include a host of excellent features not readily found in other texts ... Perhaps the strongest feature of the book is that the plentiful examples are taken from materials with a wide range of crystal structures. Make sure it is available in your EM laboratory.' - Journal of Microscopy

'This book contains rich application examples from a specialist and should be a very useful introductory text to graduate students as well as a handy reference book for research specialists.' - Microscopy and Analysis
