"(...) This book will undoubtedly arouse the reader's fresh attention to the toxic metal and deepen the understanding of its chemical properties, toxicity and underlying chemistry, and biological and global environmental effects. It is strongly recommended not only for researchers in relevant fields and those interested in the structure, function, and toxicity of metals but also for students aiming at bioinorganic, biogeochemical, biological, environmental, and related fields of chemistry."
-- Transition Metal Chemistry
"(...) the three Sigels--Helmut, Astrid, and Roland--continuing their extraordinary service to the bioinorganic chemistry community. Volume 17 provides a snapshot of where we are in our understanding of the bioinorganic chemistry of lead and points to areas where more work is needed. It also provides a staggering number of references that the interested reader can use to deepen their knowledge of whatever facet of lead chemistry they want to pursue. As the editors state in the preface, the volume 'is rich on specific information, but it provides also basic insights that should help to promote further our understanding of the unique role which this toxic metal plays in the environment and in human health.'"
