    "The Chemistry of Fireworks" is a well-researched and significant addition to the literature on pyrotechnics. It would make absorbing reading for anyone interested in the history, science and applications of this appealing branch of chemistry. I found the description of the form and function of popular fireworks easy to follow, thorough and entertaining. As such it is highly recommended.

    Some errors remain. For example, in Chapter 2, Equations 2.9 and 2.10 set k, the rate constant for a reaction, equal to t, the time until ignition. The rate constant will increase with a temperature rise, whereas the time to ignition must decrease. Perhaps this was a transposed equation that could be easily corrected in a future printing. While this volume can be improved, it does offer a starting point for the beginning student of pyrotechnics and chemistry.
