The best introduction to chemistry., September 13, 2002
Reviewer: D. R Schryer (Hampton, VA United States)

I have been a practicing research chemist for forty-five years and have also taught chemistry at several colleges. Chemistry: A Conceptual Approach is by far the finest introductory chemistry text I have ever encountered. As its title implies it presents -- in a highly-readable and understandable style -- the fundamental concepts of chemistry as well as the facts of chemistry. Although it is nominally a freshman chemistry text it is so well written and so comprehensive that it serves as an excellent reference work. In fact, although I have dozens of chemistry books in my personal collection, this is the book to which I usually turn first when looking up some chemical concept or fact. One could gain a good understanding of chemistry simply by reading this excellent book.
