Praise for the first edition:

“This is an incredible feat of gathering and curating. It would unbalanced to call out a few gems--they're all here. Readers will find the expected heirlooms from Dobzhansky, Haldane, Einstein and Darwin, plus plenty of surprises from Shakespeare to Twain to Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as the inclusion of writers who haven't quite barged into the canon....Here the dross is minimal, and the riches are high-grade ore.” —American Scientist

"This … dictionary of 18,000 quotations encompasses all areas of science. … the work grew from the authors’ frustration at the difficulty of finding quotations about statistics. … this new work is larger and easier to use when looking for a subject rather than an author. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." (S. K. Oelker, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), 2008)

"It is a thoroughly good and worthwhile reference work … . Gaither’s Dictionary of Scientific Quotations is a fine resource that will add to any reference collection. It contains many quotations, hard to find elsewhere, in a potentially very useful arrangement. It is well-produced, clearly laid out in a double column format … ." (Barry White, Reference Reviews, Vol. 22 (8), 2008)
