Reviews

"Undergraduates thinking about possible science degrees and who might like to work in a company developing new consumer goods wiill be very interested in this report of more than 100 products. It is not a long book and it is possible that it might belong both in reference and the circulating collections. Science and health teachers will be interested in this volume. --Reference for Students, November 2005
