Summary and Info
The information in this book is a mixture of theory and practical knowledge. As such, it is intended for a person working on the bench. The author connects the dots between what was learned in the classroom and how to apply the knowledge in experiments. The book does not have problem sets and answers at the end of each chapter; it is not that kind of book.
Lots of references are provided. When the author mentions something, especially something unusual, there are references. They are salient to the issue discussed.
When designing common or uncommon experiments, different approaches to experimental techniques are discussed. It is up to the experimenter to choose which design to use. The author gives a good background of the pros and cons of different techniques, as well as the overall theory behind the technique. This allows an educated decision to be made.
Had I read this book some time ago, I would have saved time by choosing the right experimental design.
