"This landmark volume shows how far the field has advanced ... . This important volume is filled with reports on what the editors term as the 'new era' in the study of phytochemicals, in which we move from the 'eat more vegetable and fruit' admonition to more detailed information on the biology, molecular biology, regulatory function, and role in human health of phytochemicals. ... All workers in phytochemicals should get themselves a copy of this valuable book."
