"This book is a joy to read (and re-read)."
—James A. Moore, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
"This very interesting book is going to find a unique place inthe repertoire of organic textbooks."
—James Canary, New York University
"Simply put, this book is a gem. The chemistry described
is rigorous but the warm, humorous, and conversational writingstyle makes the book a joy to read."
—Dasan M. Thamattoor, Colby College
"I have never come across such an enticing mix of stories ofdiscovery with basic chemistry!"
—Roald Hoffmann, Cornell University
"This is a highly original book filling an obvious need."
—Herbert Morawetz, Polytechnic University
"This book is a delightful contribution to the field of organicchemistry that offers a useful pedagogical approach."
—Pedro Cintas, Facultad de Ciencias-UEX Badajoz, Spain
"What an excellent read! The book, intended for organicchemistry students, is in the style of the first books on organicchemistry by Isaac Asimov which impressed me as a teenager in the1960´s. It makes the discovery of new chemicals and processesseem exciting, and emphasises the importance of academicunderstanding in the development of the chemical industry. (...)The book is full of interesting anecdotes, often related toserendiptious discoveries. But, as Louis Pasteur said, "Chancefavours the prepared mind". (...) One interesting story on thecracking of petroleum and the subsequent build up of coke depositsrelates to a father who was so obsessed with the subject that hecalled his son Carbon; Carbon then named his own daughters Methyland Ethyl. In my opinion, any father who saddles his children withsuch names might be regarded as a well known arsenicheterocycle!
In conclusion, all organic chemists should read this book forpleasure, not just to learn new knowledge. I hope the authors canbe persuaded to write a second volume which covers the finechemicals industry."
—Organic Process Research & Development, Dr. TrevorLaird
"This is a unique, fascinating book that bridges organicchemistry principles with chemical industrial applications. Thestory telling style make the reading/learning experience extremelyenjoyable."
—Qiao-Sheng Hu, College of Staten Island, City University ofNew York
