""I believe that many chemists, both in academia and in industry, will find this volume to be a useful addition to their libraries. I would also recommend this book for institutional library collections, where it will serve as a valuable reference source."" (Journal of the American Chemical Society, October 2009)
""This volume, part of a series structured to illustrate the widest range of literature on specific reactive intermediaries, illustrates the literature on quinone methides, quinone analogues in which carbonyl oxygens are replaced by methylene groups."" (Book News, September 2009)
