....good didactic overview....good artwork reinforcing the text.....warmly recommend this book to those about to embark on a structure-based drug design project. There are very few of us who will invent a drug, but by using the techniques described, you will shorten your own odds considerably. * Chemistry World, January 2007, p59 (Richard Lewis) * Well written......most illuminating.This is a book that the practising medicinal chemist should have at the bedside. * Chemistry & Industry, 26 March 2007 (Christopher Newton) *
