The content of Free Radicals in Biology and Medicine is as wide as the horizon and as deep as the ocean: nobody can ever dream to satisfactorily capture it in the limited space available for a book review. The target audience that will undoubtedly profit from this gigantic work is equally wide: biologists, biochemists, medical doctors, nutritionists, therapists with a sound background. It stands as an invaluable reference to be consulted without moderation, although a deep understanding certainly requires repeated reading and study. * Massimo Nespolo, Structural Biology *
