From the reviews: "A cake may have a cherry on its top, but this atlas brings to our table many 'cherries' of wood science. ... Overall, it is a great pleasure to spend time with this atlas. The vegetation scientist will find keys to interpret field observations. ... The high level of all figures, along with the reasonable price of the book, makes it a perfect source for teaching material. ... This atlas shows how much fun there is in science, in field work, and in wood." (Simcha Lev-Yadun and Paolo Cherubini, Journal of Vegetation Science, Vol. 19, 2008)
