Molecular symmetry (MS) is an easily applied tool for understanding and predicting many of the properties of molecules. This work shows how to set up symmetry groups for molecules using more fundamental ideas. It provides an introductory description of MS and quantum mechanics to show how MS is to be understood and used.

Winner of a 2005 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Book Award!

"For more than 25 years, Molecular Symmetry and Spectroscopy … and the subsequent second edition … have been this reviewer's most trusted authority and treasured references on the role of symmetry in molecular spectroscopy … . The book starts with a beautifully concise yet complete review of spectroscopy and quantum mechanics … . A fine balance is struck in the level of detail provided. … Summing up: highly recommended."
- CHOICE Reviews online

"This book provides a welcome slant on molecular symmetry, for those who worry that rigid ball and stick point group arguments to ignore the geometrical distortions accompanying molecular vibrations. In summary, this book is welcome, first as an illuminating graduate text and also as an addition to the shelves of anyone who is responsible for teaching molecular symmetry at whatever level."
- Mark Child, Chemistry World, March 2005
