"This excellent book is a vary valuable source of information...strongly recommended..." (Polymer News)

"...Mainstream polymer chemists should acquire a personal copy for their bookshelves and all serious scientific libraries otherwise." (Journal of Reactive & Functional Polymers)

"...outstanding new polymer chemistry ideal resource for students of polymers...highly recommended." (Choice, Vol. 41, No. 3, November 2003)

"This book definitely fills a need for practicing polymer chemists and is the kind of reference that they should have at their desk....also a useful textbook..."
