The Quality Handbook for Composite Materials is a comprehensive text addressing various quality control methods used in industry and academia.

Chapter 1 introduces some general points of interest, while chapter 2 discusses the control of materials. Mould controls are introduced in the following chapter. Chapters 4 and 5 address operating control in manufacture and the control of the finished laminated product, respectively.

The control of finished product composite sandwich structures is discussed in chapter 6. The subsequent chapters include conclusion, references and "some useful addresses for equipment".

This book is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students in material sciences and related fields and to researchers in composite materials. The text aims to be an aid to quality planning for the complete operation of a manufacturing unit.

Overall the Quality Handbook for Composite Materials is likely to be limited in its usefulness for international readers, or anyone outside France. Although suitable as a reference text for professional engineers or production companies involved in the quality control of composite materials, it is by no means "invaluable".
