V. Adrian Parsegian, "Van der Waals Forces: A Handbook for Biologists, Chemists, Engineers, and Physicists"
Cambridge University Press | 2005 | ISBN: 0521839068, 0521547784 | 394 pages | PDF | 3,1 MB

'... by the vivacity, passion, and precision of language with which Parsegian discusses his subject, the reader ... is inspired to participate in a grand dialog that has been going on for over a century. ... a passionate discourse on a subject of importance, presented from a very personal point of view: it will remind you why you went into science.' Physics in Canada 'A relatively short prelude provides an excellent overview of van der Waals forces and the various theories developed to explain them ... Excellent references are suggested in all such instances. Problems and examples are scattered throughout the book ... Parsegian has a gift with words and the text is enjoyable not only for its scientific insights and elegant exposure of ideas, but also for its beautiful prose ... I feel, in fact, somewhat awkward reviewing a book that is already a hit. A student walked into my office as I was absorbed in the text. His face lit up in a smile as he remarked: 'Ah, you too have discovered this book ... I just got it myself. It's excellent!' - Indeed it is!' Journal of Statistical Physics '... a user manual that describes their behaviour in many situations ... The treatment aims to explain the physical ideas in an accessible manner, while giving the mathematical derivations in full detail.' Chemistry World 'In this book, one finds all needed information when the attractive interaction becomes the core question in an experiment involving colloids, including those attracting interest for biophysicists such as bilayers, vesicles etc. This book - unique in this domain - regroups information very dispersed in primary literature.' Current Opinion in Colloid and Interface Science 'Van der Waals Forces is an outstanding volume and the authoritative work on the topic.' The Quarterly Review of Biology
