"It is an encyclopedia and up-to-date compendium of the minute details of the literature on all characterized MMPs for specialists in this field... would I buy it? Yes."
"In all, this book is a very comprehensive coverage of the specialized area of MMPs. The editors and contributors describe not only the current status of research being conducted in this field, but also speculate on the future direction of that research."
