This is Dr. Tim Bucha. I wrote a recommendation for this book. This book has been adopted by 4 Canadian universities as a textbook. It also has been adopted by major research & analytical laboratories as a manual and a reference. It is written by an authority on the subject who actually invented four analytical methods that have been officially named after him. The person who gave it one-star rating either: rated the wrong book, or he has something - personal - against the author and likely is not familiar with the subject. This book was voted the sience book of 2012 by EPEC.
my sis in grad school recommends it and her university library bought it based on the prof's recommendation.
my school library just purchased 3 copies. VIU analytical semester 2013 uses this book.
