...Although this book was written by 19 authors, its topics and information are well coordinated. The editors, who are authors or co-authors of half of the chapters, have done a very good job. This good coordination between chapters is evidenced, for example, by minimal overlapping of the references although each chapter is supplemented with 50 to 200 references. Thus, in addition to the tremendous amount of information gathered in the book, the reader is also supplied with many references from which he can find even more details....In summary, I recommend highly this valuable, extensive, thoroughly written, and carefully edited book to all those who are fascinated by or would like to become fascinated by the often surprising properties of Veritols, which force us to leave behind conventional thoughts developed from experiences with other soils.
