"The writing and preparation of this book has clearly been a labor of love for Dr. Cepanec. He has provided exhaustive coverage of the old and the new, critically analyzed and compared the methods, provided data on best conditions for first attempts, given mechanistic insight as it relates to synthetic optimization, and listed selected synthetic procedures, some from direct experience, for use in the lab. The text is clear, the equations are instructive, with more than the normal details of conditions, and the index is substantial and carefully constructed. The field of aryl-aryl coupling is omnipresent in chemical synthesis and is therefore required knowledge for the modern practicing chemist. This volume not only provides that knowledge and examples of its applications, it also fosters an appreciation of biaryl synthesis."
