From the reviews:
"This book is timely, with references up to 2004, and illustrates the synthetic potential of organopalladium chemistry and the infinite number of catalytic processes that can be derived from the unique properties of this metal. It is a valuable resource that will be of particular interest to practitioners in this field. As only a few of the chapters introduce basic knowledge on organometallic processes, readers familiar with organopalladium chemistry will have a greater understanding and appreciation of the novel catalytic processes presented in this book. Nonetheless, this excellent monograph should be added to institutional libraries, since the prohibitive cost makes the book inaccessible to most faculty members and graduate students. An electronic version of Topics in Organometallic Chemistry is also offered, which allows access to individual chapters as pdf files."

"Over the last 20 years palladium-catalysed reactions have found many applications in chemical synthesis and the most recent advances over the last five years in palladium-catalysed carbon-carbon bond formation are found in this volume. … The chemistry in each chapter is supported and illustrated with examples and applications … . This is a highly recommended monograph on palladium catalysis for organic chemists." (Helmut Hügel, Chemistry in Australia, December, 2005)
