Readers will be immediately impressed by the quality and number of figures in all used to tell the story. Surface Science is designed for advanced undergraduate or graduate students in the engineering and physical sciences. It also serves as an introduction for researchers entering the field.
Many earlier surface-science textbooks have concentrated on the experimental techniques used for measurements in the field. Surface Science also describes numerous experimental methods, but its main focus is on the concepts central to the field. After the introduction, the book presents an excellent chapter on two-dimensional crystallography; a chapter on experimental background follows, and the book then progresses through four chapters on surface analysis--from diffraction to electron spectroscopy, ion probes, and microscopy.
The book proceeds to atomic and electronic structure of surfaces.
The final four chapters discuss surfaces containing adsorbed atoms or molecules; topics include adsorption, desorption, surface diffusion, thin film behavior, and nanostructures on surfaces. Each chapter presents a few exercises that will serve well in the classroom. Yates Jr, Physics Today, October, The explanations and descriptions are clear and logical. Many examples taken from literature illustrate the content.
It can be recommended to all readers wishing to get an insight into the experimental background as well as its scientific scope ranging from basic concepts to current research. It covers all the most important aspects of modern surface science, from the experimental background and crystallographic basics to modern analytical techniques and applications to thin films and nanostructures.

Please try again later. I purchased this book as I was looking for a good primer on surface science. This is a good text as that it does not get lost in the details but has good coverage of the major topics.
I have found that this is readable on its own but I can see that it could be useful as a classroom text. I really appreciated some of the examples and the amount of micro-graphs so the surface details. The writing was, unfortunately, much more abstruse than expected since it is touted as a text for undergraduate OR graduate level studies. While it does provide a lot of information, it leaves much to be desired especially considering the price. Series Advanced texts in physics.
