How does one review The Bible? The editors, R.W. Cahn and P. Haasen, have succeeded in producing the Physical Metallurgy equivalent. This is the third revision of the famous work and it represents a major extension to the previous edition with at least 50% more material crammed into two very substantial volumes. It is really impossible to do justice to the many fine contributions that are collected together here... . This work must surely have wide appeal. No serious academic or research worker in fields connected with physical metallurgy should be without these volumes... .
It will be a very useful source for both graduate students and experienced research workers who require an overview of fields comparatively new to them.
Crystal Research and Technology
Considering the exactness and extent of the contents, this work represents an advanced textbook, and, at the same time, a suitable handbook for University.
Physical Metallurgy will become a standard work within its field and can be recommended to everyone active in this area.

These classic works are model references. One can imitate them, but not improve them. Rarely has the author of a classic piece of work, the time, energy and imagination to revise and improve it. Robert W. Cahn has managed to do this and has presented us with a new revised and bigger edition of his classic Physical Metallurgy.
