"Comprehensively covers the design, construction, and operation of gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, and thin-layer chromatography detectors--all in one convenient, up-to-date source. Emphasizes the essential use of common specifications to describe all detectors, allowing easy comparison of their attributes."
". . .the almost unique style. . .is refreshing. . .an excellent account of the principles and practice of detectors without all the math and a myriad of equations. "
". . .highly recommended. "
