"...this is a very useful and often humorous book and, to my knowledge, the only book of quotations dedicated to the subject of chemistry. I recommend Chemically Speaking to anyone who wants to spice up an otherwise dull lecture (it's even got a few quotes for 'thermodynamics'!) or illustrate a point or two in an essay or paper."
-Paul Board in Alchemist, January 2003

"Making people laugh is always important, whether in an after-dinner speech to a gathering of chemists, or even in a lecture on chemical thermodynamics ... Carl Gaither and Alma Cavazos-Gaither have evidently been assiduous over the years in putting in their thumb and pulling out a plum. And so for anyone with a speech to make, general essays to set, or with a bedside table, they have produced an indispensable collection, a wonderful bran-tub full of words."
-David Knight in Chemistry and Industry, April 2003

"Anyone who is interested in quotations cannot do without this book. It can also be recommended for those who take pleasure in original phraseology or in poetry with a scientific theme ... . It makes easy and agreeable reading with its spacious and attractive layout, and there are a few cartoons that lighten the book in an unobtrusive way."
-Hans-Jurgen Quadbeck-Seeger in Angewandte Chemie

"I am pleased that, thanks to writing this review, I shall have a copy of this book. I know I will dip into it again and again, and always with profit. If you have the chance, I recommend you buy this book and profit from its wisdom as well."
-John Nicholson in Education in Chemistry
