Aus den Rezensionen: "... verfasste ein sehr ausfuhrliches, modernes Kompendium uber Karren ! ist im Hinblick auf die ausgesprochene und auch sinnvolle Fokussierung auf Karren. ... Ausfuhrlich wird auch auf die Karrenentwicklung eingegangen, wobei eine Fulle von Zeichnungen, aber auch Farbfotos sehr hilfreich sind. ... Das Buch hilft allen im Karst tatigen Wissenschaftlern, Studenten und Interessierten, die Karren richtig anzusprechen und ihre Genese zu verstehen bzw. auch die Entwicklungsgeschichte der Karren im entsprechenden Umfeld nachzuvollziehen ..."
