Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Reviews from the First Edition
"This is a highly informative and very affordable book... Sjostrom deals with an immense amount of highly condensed information in an expert and authoritative manner... very well illustrated throughout and this adds much to the ease of understanding of the basic chemistry and applications of it in the cellulose industries."
THE FORESTRY CHRONICLE
"Professor Sjostrom has been very successful in bringing all these diverse aspects of wood together in a very readable book."
WOOD SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY"I strongly recommend it as a textbook for both teachers and students. In fact I strongly recommend it for all those interested in wood chemistry."
FOREST PRODUCTS JOURNAL
