Aus den Rezensionen: "! In mehr als 300 Tabellen werden gewohnliche und rekordverdachtige Zahlen ! prasentiert. Der Autor ! lasst die Zahlen fur sich sprechen. Die Tabellen sind ! nach Themen geordnet und mit Literaturangaben belegt. Welche Zahlen man zum Thema Biologie sucht, in diesem Buch wird man mit Sicherheit fundig. ! Auch fur den forstlichen Bereich werden interessante Zahlen wiedergegeben ! Ohne Zweifel ist dem Autor mit diesem preiswerten Buch ein grosser Wurf gelungen !" (Torsten Vor, in: Forstarchiv, 2006, Vol. 77, Issue 6, S. 225) "! Begeistert schmokert der Leser in den Zahlenbergen. Gedacht sind die Tabellen vor allem fur Studierende und Lehrende in Schulen und Hochschulen, die sich uber pH-Werte und Redoxpotential von organischen Verbindungen, uber den DANN-Gehalt von verschiedenen Organismen oder die Flugelschlagfrequenz von Vogeln informieren mochten. Doch auch Redakteure und wissensbegierige Journalisten konnen mit dieser Datensammlung ihre Texte noch ein wenig aufpeppen. ! Der Autor ! konzentriert sich auf Tabellen mit Auberschriften. Der Erfolg gibt Rainer Flindt recht." (Ralph Schill, in: Laborjournal, 2008, Issue 3, S. 86) "... Zum einen wird hiermit eine breitere wissenschaftliche A-ffentlichkeit erreicht (Lehrende, Studenten, Wissenschaftsjournalisten), zum anderen bietet das Werk auch interessante Perspektiven fur bilingualen Unterricht Englisch - Biologie. ... Diese Datensammlung ist nach wie vor einmalig." (Christiane Hogermann, in: biologenheute Landesverbande Nord, Sept. 2008 - Febr. 2009, S. 31 f.)
