"The authority, originality, and editing of the reviews are first class."

"The Advances in Protein Chemistry series has been a major factor in the education of protein chemists."
"...this book provides a revealing and up-to-date look at many aspects of protein aggregation and amyloid fibril formation...will be invaluable for anyone, and especially newcomers interested in the structure of amyloid and its molecular basis."
—Anthony L. Fink, Ph.D., University of California, Santa Cruz, in AMYLOID (1999)
