"This is a very well written book: clear, analyzes and teaches you what it is all about, anticipates questions and answers them. Very reader-friendly, a rather rare quality!"
"It covers all the fundamentals of mechanical properties, written by someone who knows them well, with a sensible approach, covering all the literature up to date and giving you the complete picture as well as the details. One learns not only nanomaterials, but materials in general."
"The book is totally self-contained, covers all the necessary background in mechanics and goes to a good enough level of covering molecular dynamics and carbon nanotubes. It will become indispensible for students/researchers in several of the areas covered: from nano-indentation, to grain size effects, to nano-devices."
"The fact that the author is primarily an experimentalist accounts for a presentation grounded on experiments and what they measure and do not measure (due to limitations), with the theory presented as the quantitative modeling of what is observed, rather than abstract theories of material behavior. I find this extremely valuable in shaping a way of approach that is the way of understanding the leading mechanisms of complex physical phenomena.""This work is a great resource for any advanced undergraduate or graduate course on mechanical properties of nanomaterials. ... Each well-structured chapter first discusses general principles and then focuses on special effects. Chapters end with a problems section and suggestions for further reading. The author provides numerous examples throughout the text, both supporting the general conceptual understanding and showing real-case examples. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals interested in the mechanical properties and behavior of nanomaterials." (H. Giesche, Choice, Vol. 47 (3), November, 2009)
