Excerpts from the review on Dr. Hwang's most recent two books on the global movement of environment-friendly electronics:
"...Dr. Jennie Hwang's second major book on lead-free electronics plays the ministerial role to its magisterial predecessor. The two books are the foundation of the technology and the real-world choices and trade-offs facing manufacturers seeking the most efficient and cost-effective ways to meet the challenge of converting to environment-friendly electronics. It is the facilitator, carrying us from the calm of the research laboratory to the clamor of the factory floor, where theories and realities collide... An impressive, unparalleled resource...a must for all involved in research, manufacturing...".
The McGraw-Hill Production Director note
"Dear Dr. Hwang:...I am happy when an experienced author with your high standards is pleased with her book. I appreciate your courtesy, promptness and attention to detail throughput the production process.
Your accomplishments are awesome, and your schedule is unbelievable. Having your secretary Vivian there when you were traveling was a tremendous help. I think she and I share deep admiration for your ability.
I, personally, am delighted to have had the opportunity of working with you.
P.S. It's "politically incorrect" but I risk repeating what I said to Vivian once - you have a fantastic brain, superb accomplishments, etc, and are gorgeous, too!
