From reviews of the prior edition:
"The present English version is more than just a handbook which means a comprehensive and instructive book on the subject. The most important advantage is that it has not only been written for the practitioner, but also the analyst who wishes to familiarise himself with any or all the aspects of GC/MS."
- AFS - Advances In Food Sciences, 2001; Vol. 23; No. 3

"The book offers an excellent overview on the analytical method showing its principles as well as potential and possibilities. In summary, it is a very useful book for the daily GC/MS practice as well as for the introduction of beginners and students in this analytical technique. It should be present in every in food environmental, pharmaceutical and clinical GC/MS laboratory."
H. Raddatz, European Food Research and Technology
