"Overall this is an excellent book - thorough and accessible - and a valuable resource for dental and oral hygiene practitioners... Oral malodor is an ongoing concern for many of our patients, and dental schools in their curricula and dentists in their practices should not treat the problem with indifference... This book is a good place to begin to gain appropriate perspective."

Dr. Irwin D. Mandel, Journal of Periodontology, 1997.

"I highly recommend this text. Bad Breath: Research Perspectives has significant value for every dental practitioner who recognizes and treats patients who have halitosis."

J.D. McDowell, Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), March 1996.

"Bad Breath: Research Perspectives" is a must for those in the field of oral hygiene. The excellence of the volume is attributable to many factors, including the quality of the papers, the status of the research contributors, the scope of the reports and the extensive references, which unify important literature on bad breath into a single location. I commend the editor and contributors on perhaps the first major effort to assemble - in a single book - a comprehensive discussion of bad breath."

M. Pader, Cosmetis & Toiletries, March, 1996.

"This book opens a window for the reader to look at research and developments in this field... and to realize how much there is still to be learnt about this most interesting of subjects."

M. Druian, The Dentist, July-Aug., 1995.

"This is a welcome volume for many reasons... it brings science to bear on a problem confronting a high proportion of the adults in the world... the first contemporary volume to address the various issues related to human oral malodor."

R.J. Doyle, Journal of Dental Research, Aug., 1995

"It is a novel idea to view oral malodor as a science by itself and the editor needs to be given a big hand for his attempt. This book should find its place in all postgraduate medical and dental institutions."

R. Gopakumar, Indian Journal of Dental Research, Oct., 1995
