"Lin and colleagues...consolidate and evaluate the most useful methodologies for producing enantiomerically pure or enriched compounds." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 3, September 2001) "...a concise and fairly comprehensive overview..." (Angewandte Chemie, 15 October 2001) "...a very good review of basic asymmetric methodology that can be recommended to students of organic chemistry..." (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, Vol. 44, No. 26 2001) "a well balanced survey of stereocontrolled methodologies and synthetic applications from which the reader can achieve valuable information." (ChemWeb, 14 January 2002) "There are many books on asymmetric synthesis, but this work...is one of the most useful and comprehensive" (Organic Process Research & Development)
