The esteemed 12-volume mother set is ten million words; this one-volume distillation is one million words and though big, can fit on a desk. It was created by having professional science writers condense the original work's articles, after which the shortened versions were reviewed by the original authors or their colleagues for accuracy and updated as necessary. Key data, tables, and factual matter are retained, and the coverage remains comprehensive, including every aspect of polymer properties, synthesis, characterization, processing, engineering, test methods, applications, historical perspectives, and economics. Articles are alphabetically arranged, with thorough cross referencing; a keyword index provides further access.
