"At what must be considered a modest price, this book is warmly recommended as a good overall survey of the field to chemists and biochemists working in biomedical or related areas. It will also appeal to teachers of organic chemistry as a source book of medically relevant example..." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 123, No. 30, 2001)
"In an age of disposable artifacts and useless gadgets, this is a book to pick up frequently, read slowly, assimilate, and above all enjoy." (Pharmaceutical Research, Vol. 18, No. 9, September 2001)
"A fascinating book...one of the best summaries of the new approach that I have seen." (Chemistry & Industry, 19 November, 2001)
