Honestly, this book is really a “bible” for people doing NMR. I learned most of my NMR knowledge by reading this book in 2001. I still remember that moment that KM and I spent every Wednesday night to discuss the content of each chapter.
The one I had read was first edition which was published in 1996. In Jan. 2007, I finally got the second edition from amazon after the pre-ordered I made in Aug. 2006. The new edition adds lots of new NMR techs e.g. RDC, TROSY, slow motion dynamics and so on.
In summary, this is really a good book and a NMR person should keep it in hand as a tool book and a reference book. Dr. Palmer also constructs a website to provide the update, errata and other information about this book. The URL is here: http://www.palmer.hs.columbia.edu/protein_nmr_spectroscopy/index.html
