"[...] Volume 17 of Metal Ions in Life Sciences is the most current source of information on the fundamental biochemistry of lead, and a useful and timely summary of its impact on human health and the environment. It should be widely available and frequently consulted."
Dean Wilcox in: Inorganica Chimica Acta 474 (2018), p. 117
"(...) The well-balanced and comprehensive selection of aspects makes it the most valuable source of information on the present state of research in the field. This volume is an important addition to every library of a chemistry or biochemistry research institution, and it will serve as an essential reference work for every researcher in the field of metals in biology."
-- Coordination Chemistry Reviews
"(...) 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.'"
