"The editors are to be commended on producing a comprehensive, virtually error free text which should serve as a model for similar reviews in other fields of natural products."
—Robert J. Krueger, Ferris State University, in Economic Botany, 2007, 61 (1), P 99
"… the latest in a series of what are widely considered as flavonoid 'bibles' … a must-have source of reference material for anyone actively researching or interested in flavonoids … I found [it] both useful in my capacity as a scientist actively researching in this field, and would recommend the book to those in a similar situation. It should also be of interest to certain universities that teach courses related to plant secondary products."
—Paul A. Kroon, Chemistry World, May 2007
"As interest in the impact and health benefits of flavonoids continues to grow, this book reflects the dedicated commitment of flavonoid researchers to the improvement of human health and provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date source of information on all known flavonoids."
—Anticancer Research, 2006
"I consider this book a highly valuable source of material considering not just the actual text but also the references cite."
—La Revista Italiana Delle Sostanze Grasse, 2006
"…remarkable piece of work! …not only a valuable compilation of advances and perspectives in the field of flavonoid chemistry and biochemistry, but should also serve as a useful handbook for both research and testing in the field. Personally, I have already placed this heavyweight volume on my shelf of must-have books on polyphenol-oriented research."
—Stéphane Quideau, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 2006
"This excellent and timely volume on flavonoids provides a comprehensive update to the last compendium on the subject…highly recommended to anyone interested in studying flavonoids from chemical, biochemical, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, taxonomic, and economic points of view."
—Rachel Mata, Journal of Natural Products, 2007
"Since 1994, remarkable progress has been made in our understanding of flavonoid biosynthesis. DNA sequences are now available for most of the enzymes required to form the common flavonoid types. Biotechnology of the flavonoid pathway was in its infancy at the start of the 1990s, but is currently being widely applied to develop improved cultivars of ornamental, pasture, and food crops. As knowledge of flavonoids and human health progresses, one may anticipate that gene technology will be increasingly applied to improve the health characteristics of crop plants."
