" The importance of this book is derived from the coverage of the fundamental, yet complex, layered structures that are possible from combining one or more layer types. Such combinations help make new-aged technological materials or enable ways to interpret old-aged geological materials."

".....the bottom line is that EMU 11 is a very nice review volume for state-of-the-art layered mineral characterization methods."  - Elements
