"Helps you explore how you think, communicate and react, allowing you to change your behaviours and become a more expert professional practitioner." (Journal of Perioperative Practice, April 2008)
"Reading this book has been enjoyable experience. Again and again, one comes across surprising reaction possibilities of well-known reagents, or some lesser known variants of common transformations." (Angewandte Chemie)
"This book provides an excellent selection of useful name reactions, which have been given in depth, well-illustrated, instructional, and well-referenced accounts." (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, January 11, 2008)
