Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. 1. Spirit Whirled: The Deaf Phoenicians.

It has thus been possible to show the interrelationship of the different aspects of the subject in a coherent framework. The book has been written to be self-contained, with most equations fully derived and critically discussed. It is supported by a large number of diagrams and micrographs and is fully referenced for more advanced reading. Young, P. A. Lovell, Philippe Grandjean.

Introduction to Polymers. Lovell. Moreover, not only have Young and Lovell produced an excellent text (again) for supporting undergraduate teaching, this book is also a superb entry level text for postgraduates students with limited experience of polymers. Chemistry World, 2012. The material has been completely reorganized and expanded to include important new topics and provide a coherent platform for teaching and learning the fundamental aspects of contemporary polymer science.

In addition to the people and organizations who assisted in the preparation of the First Edition, the authors would like to thank Mrs Susan Brandreth and Mrs Jean Smith for typing the new manuscript. They are also grateful to Dr Frank Heatley, Dr Tony Ryan, Dr John Stanford and Dr Bob Stepto for useful comments on aspects of the new material. Finally, they would like to express their sincere gratitude to their families for the understanding and support they have shown during the writing and preparation of the new edition. ROBERT J. YOUNG PETER A. LOVELL Manchester Materials Science Centre 1990 Preface to the first edition Polymers are a group of materials made up of long covalently-bonded molecules, which include plastics and rubbers. The use of polymeric materials is increasing rapidly year by year and in many applications they are replacing conventional materials such as metals, wood and natural fibres such as cotton and wool. The book is designed principally for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science and Engineering who are studying polymers. An increasing number of graduates in these disciplines go on to work in polymer-based industries, often with little grounding in Polymer Science and so the book should also be of use to scientists in industry and research who need to learn about the subject.
  • I’m an engineer who recently started my PhD in Materials science. My research will be heavily focused in Polymers. As a student with minimal exposure to the area, I thought this book would be helpful and provide a nice overview on the subject.

    The pro and con with this book is that it goes in WAY too much detail on certain subjects such as the polymerization mechanisms; a lot of the info is filled. With the overwhelming amount of info, sometimes you get lost as a reader on the main point that’s trying to be told. I understand the field of study is very complex and encompasses many subjects. However, the authors could have toned it down a bit, as this is an introductory book.

  • Very useful text for beginning study of polymers. It approaches the subject from a chemistry standpoint and is useful for looking up reactions. I find it easier to read and study from than Odian's Principles of Polymerization. I would recommend this book with Polymer Chemistry by Heimenz and Lodge for anyone taking polymer courses or starting in polymer research. Using the two texts together gives you a nice overview of important points in polymer chemistry and engineering and gives useful examples of real world problems.

  • I feel that this textbook is mostly filler. They could have made it smaller and faster to read, but they didn't. It was also very unenjoyable to read, even by textbook standards.

  • For the amount of content and diversity of polymer topics at the paperback price this is a great value. When the title says "Introduction", you must accept that it won't have every topic in detail. That said, I think there is more meat to it than the Stevens text.

  • Best book on Intro to Polymers there is. Gives both the Chemistry and the Engineering and properties of polymers equal weight.

  • There are a lot of unessasery information.

  • Young's classic has been beefed up. Nice updates and additions. For those in need of a good general reference on polymers, this is it.

  • I've got a number of books on polymers, from the basics, to the more technical aspects of their chemistry, processing, and behavior. This is still my first go to reference when I need to look something up. It's an introductory guide, yes, but it provides a good amount of depth on most topics as well.

    I think what I like most about this book is how it's written. It's extremely easy to read, with concepts explained in clear English without any unnecessary wording. It's very straight forward and easy to understand, even for those not wholly familiar with the science.

    The book covers the majority of topics you'll need to know, including definitions and nomenclature, a all the different synthesis methods, different methods of characterization, the different structures seen, and an excellent chapter on the mechanical properties and behavior, including deformation mechanisms.

    I'd recommend this to any budding materials science student, whether or not it's required reading. Often times I found myself coming to this book rather than the required text, simply for ease of reading or to better familiarize myself with the concept before trying to work through the (often times) poorly worded required text.
