`The book merits a place in any Science Library and I recommend it to anyone who shares the obvious fascination of the writers with molecules and accepts that molecular properties are often best described with the aid of mathematical expressions.' M. Godfrey, Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, 269 (1989) `... provide a panoramic view of the status and potential of molecular sciences at the end of the nineteen eighties. This four-volume set ... represents a great value for any scientific library or private collections. creating a broad-based and rich mini-series on molecular sciences.' Structural Chemistry, 1:5
