"The greatest vantage point of the CD-ROM is the ability to conduct structure or substructure searches. …the launch of the second edition of this book (which surveys the literature up to late 2004) is timely considering the degree to which it has been further expanded and modified since the first edition. Whilst the printed book will undoubtedly find a place in many a library, it will also be of significant interest to researchers in the carbohydrate/glycosciences (synthetic carbohydrate chemists in particular). However, once purchased it is most likely that the textbook won't see too much 'off-the-shelf' action as the greater mobility and versatility of the CD-ROM will certainly see that it is in daily use."
-Chris Hamilton, Biochemist e-volution, 2006
"[This book]…provides a wealth of information for carbohydrate researchers. …The number of compounds included has been substantially increased…this volume constitutes a major reference book for which Peter Collins and his team are to be highly congratulated. It is an excellent source of information and is highly recommended to all the persons working in carbohydrate research, development or use."
-Carbohydrate Polymers, 2006
"A rich source of key information for all those working in glycoscience and glycobiology. …[this book] should become an indispensable volume in libraries of all institutions and laboratories dedicated to carbohydrates and glycoconjugates, an important 'carbohydrate bible'."
-Peter Biely, Chemical Papers
"I am confident that the dictionary of carbohydrates will become a desk reference book for many researchers working in the field of chemistry and biochemistry of carbohydrates, glycobiology, and biotechnology, and in various fields of analytical and bioorganic chemistry."
