From the Publisher"This reviewer would have been very glad to have had a book such as this, about value creation in the chemical industry, at the start of his industrial career! In this book, which contains 33 chapters written by over 50 authors, the three editors have succeeded in putting together a work on this complex subject that is very readable and easy to understand, even for nonchemists. Of the 54 authors, 35 are from the McKinsey consultancy organization, while 19 are experienced business leaders from the chemical industry. The book can be strongly recommended for everyone who is working in this or a related area, or intends to do so...This is an excellent book, both in its standard of production and especially in its content, and I hope that it will reach a wide readership so long as it remains up-to-date."
"This comprehensive collection of data and ways of thinking of people, who as non-chemists have an ever increasing influence on the way the chemical industry is managed, is of considerable influence to those, who should provide the basis for the innovations to come, the scientists. Only if members of the two worlds talk to and understand each other, the chemical industry can continue to prosper. It is hoped that this well-conceived book will play its role at this important interface."
