From the reviews:

"The volume makes a most welcome and significant addition to the publishers’ Nanoscience and Technology series. It will indeed be a valuable and unique reference for those who want to, and need to understand the novel microscopy methods for imaging magnetic structures on the nanoscale. The topics covered are excellent and are just the ones researchers and professors at universities guiding graduate students who have opted for research in the field." (Current Engineering Practice, Vol. 47 (3), 2004-2005)

"The book Magnetic Microscopy of Nanostructures is an addition to the Springer series on Nanoscience and Technology … . It provides an excellent collection of comprehensive articles on current magnetic microscopy techniques. All the contributions have very good introductions, a detailed experimental section, and many examples of applications. The advantage of such a collection in book form … is that newcomers to the field can rapidly gather the important information. … I highly recommend this book … ." (Harald Brune, Materials Today, May, 2005)

"The latest volume in the Springer Series on Nanoscience and Technology, Magnetic Microscopy of Nanostructures … will be of immediate interest to the corresponding subset of ultra-microscopists. … This excellent collection really is a valuable addition to the bookshelf and is produced to the high standards that characterize so many of the Springer Series." (P. W. Hawkes, Ultramicroscopy, Vol. 107, 2007)
