"This is an exceptionally clear and careful exposition of the elementary aspects of electrochemistry. The details have been well thought out and the examples and problems are well judged and helpful."
--ROGER PARSONS,University of Southampton, U.K.

...the book would be a good starting poing for more advanced levels of study where a good understanding of electrochemical principles is would certainly be useful for an electroanalytical chemist who wished to understand electrochemical processes in more depth....In general this is a clearly written book on electrochemistry which will be of use to anybody wishing to understand the subject in reasonable depth.
