"If one is seriously interested to any extent in the process of joining in the broadest terms this must be a significant source of information"- International Journal of Adhesion and Adhesives "This is one of the most comprehensive texts available for the reference shelf on joining technologies. Very Highly Recommended!"- Adhesives & Sealants Newsletter, September 2006 "Where it is proposed to join materials or structures in a new or unconventional way not already proven by use in service, this book will give a guide on methods to be adopted and problems which could arise. The book of some 800 pages with many photographs and illustrations is easily readable and a useful source of information on this most important aspect of modern construction."- W.A. Black in Building Engineer, April 2005
