|Author||Mihai V. Putz|
"Prof. Putz takes the reader back and forth between well-established facts and new insights, between material from one’s earliest education, to that which transcends all earlier education. . . . Putz’s books offer much for the neophyte and senior scientist alike, neither of whom should assume that s/he will be able to make numerically more reliable predictions of phenomena than he or she could before reading, whether it be of a melting point, a reaction yield, or an LD50. Understanding is more important than factual knowledge, and that is an aspiration shared by the author of these volumes, and that of this foreword. . . . Rewards do await the careful, competent, concerned reader . . ."
