``The editors are to be congratulated for this thorough and critical assessment of molecular metal clusters in catalysis. The strength of this book is the critical coverage of each topic making it very valuable within the field. Close to 2000 carefully selected literature references provide the reader with key information to metal clusters. Without any doubt this is the most authoritative work written today on this subject.''
