"What I really like and what I would like to emphasize is the fact that this book is not only a comprehensive collection of biochemical data on redox mechanisms, but is legible as well. The personal style and the commitment of the author that can be felt between the lines contributes to my unreserved recommendation to have this book on the shelf of everyone who is busy in the field of making compounds that interact with living systems." --Pharmaceutica Acta Helvetiae "Testa's deep comprehension of his subject and his scholarly commitment make sure that this volume is not only comprehensive but eminently readable." --SIR JAMES BLACK, Nobel Laureate "...several books have appeared on the metabolism of xenobiotic compounds, but this new text, by one of the most respected researchers in the field, has set the benchmark for all that follow... indispensible to all serious students of drug metabolims, and a collection to treasure." --Laurence J. Kim, University of Surrey, in ISSX NEWSLETTER "The overall impression is one of a book that is extensively and well researched with the facts clearly laid out in a very readable style." --David Needham in BRITISH TOXICOLOGY SOCIETY NEWSLETTER "The book would be very applicable as a text or reference for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in toxicology, drug metabolism, medicinal chemistry and pharmacy. Professor Testa has done a very admirable job of compiling and presenting material of the subject. The book is strongly recommended as a course text and general reference, and I look forward to seeing the remaining three volumes in the series." --F. Peter Guengerich in PHARMACEUTICAL NEWS
