Technical Abstract: Review of book, Lipid Analysis - Third Edition, William W. Christie, 2003. The author is generally considered to be the most prominent international authority on lipid analysis. The First and Second Editions of Lipid Analysis were published in 1973 (325 pages, 612 references) and 1982 (207 pages, 874 references), both by Pergamon Press, Oxford. This book contains twelve chapters. It is an excellent compilation of the most useful modern analytical methods for lipid analysis. I am confident that it will serve for many years as a valuable reference tool to all oil chemists who are involved in the analysis of lipids from animals, plants, or microbes.
