Review quote

"The Editor, Professor Steve Hill, states in the preface that the purpose was to produce a book that covers both theory and applications in a concise, informative and readable form. This has certainly been achieved and the book is a very welcome addition to the literature.

"...The content is excellent. I am very pleased to have a copy of this book for my own use and it would be amongst my first-choice texts to recommend to students or those who have little or no previous experience of plasma source spectrometry." --TRENDS IN ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, August 2000

"...well-written and easy to read...a good introduction to ICP-MS." --Journal of American Society of Mass Spectrometry
