"Although each of the 13 chapters is carefully structured with supporting diagrams, experimental data, and review questions, a quick scan of the table of contents will lead directly to individual interest areas. From car interiors to space capsules and submarines, common and exotic needs and specific remedies are included in this fascinating book." -R. M. Ferguson, in CHOICE, October 2001
