Review quote

"This three-volume set contains an enormous amount of information on pesticides, presented in a useful and interesting form. Each chapter is written by one or more leading authorities in the field, a total of 32 authors being involved... This important contribution to the literature should be in undergraduate and graduate collections and will be a valuable reference to anyone involved in pesticide and toxicology research."
--CHOICE, November 1991
"The final four sections, 8-11, have specific interest for the veterinarian. These sections include some extremely valuable tables which in themselves represent a valuable resource of information concerning a variety of compounds and their effect upon a variety of living species... There is a place for this publication in veterinary and agricultural libraries, and it is unlikely to have any equal."
"The first volume of the Handbook provides a detailed, fully documented overview of the general principles of toxicolcogy (dosage and other factors, metabolism, mechanisms of injury, and studies in humans), and summarizes what is known about human exposure to pesticides, the effects of pesticides on human populations, diagnosis and treatment of poisoning, prevention of injury, effects of pesticides on domestic animals, and effects on wildlife. The second and third volumes provide a similarly detailed overview of the different classes of pesticides, with a separate section devoted to each of 256 compounds that have been studied in humans. In addition to the generally interested who want to respond responsibly to pesticide issues, these volumes will be of value to scientific investigations, physicians in avariety of settings, government regulators, trial lawyers, farmers, pest control operators, and safety directors of related industries."
