`The subject is presented authoritatively, systematically and concisely without resort to mathematical treatment. As this subject is often given little coverage in textbooks or organic chemistry this text is to be welcomed.' Aslib Book Guide, vol.61, no.11, November 1996
`This book is a useful introduction to stereo-electronic effects in organic chemistry. The style is engaging ... this book is an excellent supplementary text for undergraduates. Sponsorship for the series by Zeneca also ensures that it is extremely good value for money.' Chemistry in Britain, September 1997
`engaging critique of biography .... enjoyable and thought provoking' New Scientist
