From the reviews:
"The book is divided into Parts I-IV with a total of 21 chapters. ... All figures, tables and equations are well-reproduced and enhance the text substantially. This book is a unique and timely publication within the field of palaeoenvironmental research. ... all of the chapters have substantial reference lists. The content is also made accessible to new researchers through the 41-page glossary and a detailed index. ... an essential reference for postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the early stages of their careers." (Adrian Palmer, The Holocene, February, 2013)
"Each chapter provides basic concepts of the method presented, details concerning data preparation and transformation, a thorough discussion supported by case studies, and recommendations regarding potential use in palaeolimnological studies. ... the content is well illustrated by figures and tables of excellent quality. A very important part of each chapter is a list of up-to-date references and suitable software packages. ... it is a priceless source of knowledge which should be among must-read books on every palaeolimnologist's bookshelf." (Wojciech Tylmann, Geologos, Vol. 19 (4), 2013)
