He retired in 2007, but continues to write and lecture worldwide.

Reviews

Books of the Year, Observer. `His engaging account...the lucid figures offer readers a firm understanding of energy and entropy.' Science `Concise, well-written, engaging and carefully structured... an enjoyable and informative read.' Chemistry World `Peter Atkins's account of the core concepts of thermodynamics is beautifully crafted.' Simon Mitton, THES `A brief and invigoratingly limpid guide to the laws of thermodynamics.' Saturday Guardian `Atkins's systematic foundations should go a long way towards easing confusion about the subject...an engaging book, just the right length (and depth) for an absorbing, informative read.' Mark Haw, Nature `[Atkins'] ultra-compact guide to thermodynamics [is] a wonderful book that I wish I had read at university.' New Scientist
