    "This book, edited by a leading expert on materials and nanotechnology, Dr. Sam Zhang, provides a comprehensive view of the current state of the field on magnetic materials and how these materials are enabling advances in the fundamental science and innovative applications."
    — Anupama B. Kaul, University of Texas, El Paso, USA

    "Although this book includes lots of specialized forefront research areas, it starts with very general and basic chapter. Therefore, this book can nicely bridge basic knowledge and practical applications. This feature is highly beneficial to wide range of readers including graduate students and active researchers."
    — Katsuhiko Ariga, ¿WPI-MANA, National Institute for Materials Science, Ibaraki, Japan

    "This book would interest readers who want to learn about the technical details of nanostructured magnetic materials and their unique properties. It is filled with experimental data on magnetic properties, SEM and TEM images of structures, processing methods, and applications. The huge number of references will also assist the reader to explore topics of interest in greater depth."
