From the reviews of the first English editions:
"The selection of material and the order of its presentation is first class ... Students and their instructors will find this book extraordinarily easy to use and extraordinarily useful."
Chemistry in Britain
"... the textbook of choice for graduate or senior–level courses that place an equal emphasis on main group element and transition metal organometallic chemistry. ... this book can be unequivocally recommended to any teacher or student of organometallic chemistry."
Angewandte Chemie International Edition
"The breadth and depth of coverage are outstanding, and the excitement of synthetic organometallic chemistry comes across very strongly."
