Review:

Review from previous edition The book will appeal not just to scientists and science students but also to the interested lay person. And it passes the most difficult test of any dictionary - it is well worth browsing. (New Scientist)

All entries are clear and brief, written in no-nonsense prose...A handy reference work. (TES)

Handy and readable...for scientists aged nine to ninety (Nature)
