"The book is quite readable. A knowledgeable synthetic chemist can appreciate the detail and the examples that have been highlighted to emphasize the importance of each methodology. . . Overall, however, the book is very good and a worthwhile addition to the libraries of those who appreciate synthetic chemistry in conjugated polymers." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, 23 March 2011)

"An indispensable source for every synthetic polymer chemist." (Robotics Technology, 15 February 2011)
