A review of the first edition of this book was published in the May 2001 issue of Acta Cryst. A57, page 368. The second edition has been considerably updated, especially the chapter on experimental methods, which is now mainly concerned with modern data collection using area detectors. Many tips and insights help readers to recognise and avoid possible errors and traps, and to judge the quality of results.
