Review quote

It is both pleasure and privilege to be able to review this book written by an eminent carbohydrate crystallographer who has spent his lifetime at the University of Pittsburgh decoding the secrets of hydrogen bonds, especially in the solid state...The details in the book are the greatest up-to-date resource on hydrogen bonds in molecules having a wide range of chemistry and complexity. Although Jeffrey considers it a supplement to undergraduate textbooks, I would also strongly recommend An Introduction to Hydrogen Bonding to all graduate students and research scientists pursuing active research in structural science./Rengaswami Chandrasekaran Purdue University/Carbohydrate Research 312 1998.
