Book Review Exerpts of 1st edition:
'Excellent, up-to-date discussion of many classes of materials. Concisely written, understandable with integration of real-world and historical references. Well-illustrated with judicious use of color. Extensive research sections for further study.'
As a biochemist/chemical educator, I found the text very instructive. A material science engineer at Intel (a friend) gave the book a 'thumbs-up' review.''

Bradley Fahlman is to be commended for undertaking the challenge of producing what is probably the first true chemistry text in Materials Chemistry. This is a rapidly growing field, along with its spin-off Nanoscience. For producing the first true Chemistry text in a new field, Materials Chemistry, and for its high quality, it is most appropriate that Bradley D. Fahlman be honered with a 2008 Texty Award for Excellence.
TEXTY Awards Judges' comments.

'After briefly defining materials chemistry and its history, six chapters discuss sold-state chemistry, metals, semiconducting materials, organic 'soft' materials, nanomaterials, and materials characterization. The author chose depth over breadth, resulting in deep, detailed prose. The strengths of this book are its illustrations and color graphics, as well as up-to-date references and examples.'
D.E. Hubbard, Missouri University of Science and Technology, CHOICE/Choice Reviews Online, February 2008
