"This book is mainly a listing of the hazardous properties and commercial uses for several hundred common chemicals. ... the format appears to be quite useful ... information is presented as readily understandable blocks of text, rather than just numeric values. ... Summing Up: Recommended."
H E. Pence, emeritus, SUNY College at Oneonta, CHOICE, February 2014

"The power of this book is the consistent summary of the hazards and advice on reducing exposures to a wide range of chemicals. ... Students, chemical safety officials, and industrial hygiene professionals will find this book extremely useful. Dr. Dikshith has patiently distilled the critical health and safety information on hundreds of chemicals found in the workplace. Dr. Dikshith has met the challenge of assembling chemical health and safety information that is too often scattered across multiple sources into a practical volume that many will find helpful."
-Steven Gilbert, INND & Affiliate Professor University of Washington
