Editorial Reviews

Review
[This book] is an excellent tome for anyone who may work with chemistry and
chemists but has little or no training in chemistry. Let's assume that a budding
scientist is in your household. A fast way to introduce the chemical industry to
him or her is to give this book as a present.
- Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 80, No. 8, August 2003
