I have seen some of it already and while it is too early to tell, certainly, there are many cases where it is very weak... watered down to a high school level. The gelatin section for example, relies way too much upon the web sites of commercial gelatin manufacturers... and little, if any new material is presented.
The style seems a weakly immitation of another Springer Verlag book...
I will have to go over it with a fine tooth comb (I am sure it has it's moments!),
but a Mees it ain't.
