Comprehensive Biomaterials brings together the myriad facets of biomaterials into one, major series of six edited volumes that would cover the field of biomaterials in a major, extensive fashion: Volume 1: Metallic, Ceramic and Polymeric Biomaterials Volume 2: Biologically Inspired and Biomolecular Materials Volume 3: Methods of Analysis Volume 4: Biocompatibility, Surface Engineering, and Delivery Of Drugs, Genes and Other Molecules Volume 5: Tissue and Organ Engineering Volume 6: Biomaterials and Clinical Use Experts from around the world in hundreds of related biomaterials areas have contributed to this publication, resulting in a continuum of rich information appropriate for many audiences. The work addresses the current status of nearly all biomaterials in the field, their strengths and weaknesses, their future prospects, appropriate analytical methods and testing, device applications and performance, emerging candidate materials as competitors and disruptive technologies, and strategic insights for those entering and operational in diverse biomaterials applications, research and development, regulatory management, and commercial aspects. From the outset, the goal was to review materials in the context of medical devices and tissue properties, biocompatibility and surface analysis, tissue engineering and controlled release. It was also the intent both, to focus on material properties from the perspectives of therapeutic and diagnostic use, and to address questions relevant to state-of-the-art research endeavors.

"In a highly technical and vastly broad subject area, the key to managing (mastering) reputable information and facilitating new breakthroughs is through its preservation and organization by experts in the field. For students or researchers wanting a quick introduction or a working knowledge of an unfamiliar subfield of biomaterials, the assembled chapters will be much more valuable than the typical documents that rise to the top of keyword searches. The authors and editors should be commended for their efforts and congratulated on producing an impressive reference of lasting value. In this reviewer's opinion, it will be an essential reference for any library affiliated with graduate programs in the biomedical sciences. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." --Choice "This is a huge body of work and I would suspect the price would preclude individual researchers from acquiring the set; however, this is a must have for libraries as an up-to-date reference for the current state-of-the-art information in this field as well as a fundamental reference tome for researchers seeking an introduction to the field." --Journal of Biomaterials Applications, February 2012
