From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"The basic concept of the new edition … remains unchanged: Emphasis is again … on a broader description of the general methods and processes for the synthesis, modification and characterisation of macromolecules. … In addition to the preparative aspects the book also gives the reader an impression on the relation of chemical constitution and morphology of polymers to their properties, as well as on their application areas." (KGK-Kautschuk Gummi Kunststoffe, Issue no. 5, 2005)

"The book, I found, covers a wide range of topics, all of value to a technologist seeking further knowledge of polymer structures, their creation and subsequent accreditation … . it is a goldmine of information on the various processes for generating known polymer structures – again, well presented … . If I have one criticism it is that perhaps the book attempts to cover too much - it is certainly not a text that can be reviewed in one sitting! To give it full justice, I needed to go back to it several times. Nevertheless, it is a book that I will certainly return to again, not only to gain a better understanding of the topic of polymers, but to dip into a fascinating presentation of what has been achieved with the chemistry of macropolymers." (Jan Czerski, Materials World, Vol. 14 (4), April, 2006)

"This improved and updated 4th edition of the 1971 original has been written by a group of qualified authors who have pit together coherent and detailed material comprising a well-balanced mixture of theoretical descriptions with over 100 well-selected experiments. … Overall, the book is an eclectic combination of polymer topics geared towards the industrial chemist. However, it is also a good student laboratory manual and it would certainly be a useful companion in a polymer synthesis class." (AD Asandei, Polymer International, Vol. 55 (1), 2005)

"The original edition had, as does the new fourth edition, detailed methods for many polymerisation reactions using all types of polymerisation conditions. … Polymer Synthesis: Theory and Practice can be a useful and comprehensive book for finding starting-point experimental conditions for most polymerisations. It should be considered for library acquisition, where it will serve many users." (R.A. Shanks, Magazine of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, June, 2005)
