HEREDITY 33:123. "...unusually good value."
QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY 74:74. "The author clearly met his goal: to facilitate communication and understanding across all biological sciences". "...this book should prove very useful as a quick desk reference for students, professionals and non-professionals."
AMERICAN JOURNAL OF MEDICAL GENETICS 83:145. "He undauntedly covers the entire field of contemporary genetics including not only the classical areas of formal genetics and cytogenetics but also the latest global molecular advances and their applications." I found the contents very useful..."

ANNALS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE 130:168. "This book is a valuable reference tool and will be of interest to a wide audience. Other books, including glossaries and dictionaries of genetics are available but are more limited in coverage".
ANNALS OF THE ENTOMOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA 91:894. "The preparation of a book like this is a massive task. If it is done well, it can provide a valuable central resource to information that might otherwise take a lengthy search to uncover". "In this case...the overall effort has been very successful."

JOURNAL OF PHYTOPATHOLOGY 147:623. "This giant volume is recommended to those who are in contact with the genetic aspects of questions in their field of research or practice." ... "The most important feature of this book is that all concepts are explained not just defined"..."The style is clear even for the beginner".
ACTA AGRONOMICA HUNGARICA 47(2):237. "...although a number of dictionaries or glossaries of genetics already exist, this...is quite different from the others in-as-much as it is much more comprehensive, and not only defines the concepts but explains them in concise plain language"..."fills a void".

"...it is truly wonderful"...Most students, scientists, all geneticists, including human geneticists, the general public interested in natural sciences, teachers and journalists can benefit from it to a great degree. It is a must for larger biological libraries!" (translated from German).
CLINICAL CHEMISTRY (2004, 50:1719-1720.) "...the book has an encyclopedic quality, far surpassing a dictionary." "...many readers will find themselves engrossed in this fascinating book."... "This is a wonderful book..."

REFERENCE REVIEWS (2004, 18 :43-44). "excellent volume"... "is a readable, accessible, well thought out and extremely useful reference book."
MICROBE MAGAZINE (Amer. Soc. Microbiol.) May 2004: "It is impressive that a single author can put together a dictionary of this size and make it useful to the general scientific reader." "Rédei?s definitions are accurate?" "Rédei is a clear winner."
THE CHEMICAL EDUCATOR (2005, 10 (6):56-57). "Rédei has eminently succeeded in attaining his goal." "Numerous cross-references link the short entries into a most encyclopedic, up-to-date text."..."gold mine of valuable...information."
