"The book fulfills its purpose and provides considerable background on the fundamentals of NMR spectroscopy, as well....the book is well written and should be particularly valuable to industrial and academic labs studying a variety of polymers and related problems." --Dr. Larry S. Simeral, Albemarle Corporation, APPLIED SPECTROSCOPY

"Frank A. Bovey and Peter A. Mireau have succeeded well in their objective....those most likely to find the book useful are postgraduate students and research scientists who have a special interest in polymer science and are already familiar with NMR methods." --Bernhard Blumich

"This is an excellent book that should be continuously consulted by everyone involved in studying polymers, both in academia and in industrial research labs....I highly recommend this as a very useful reference book, not only for the beginners in the field, but also for researchers who currently use one or another of the NMR techniques available to polymer chemists." --Almeria Natansohn, Queen's University, JOURNAL OF AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY
