This book is an entry-level chemistry book, most likely engineered for school children. Although these may never read a chemistry book that is not their school text-book. All subjects are presented very simply indeed, making it an easy book to read. But the style is a little uncomfortable, as if deliberately trying to appeal to its readership.

It has been a joy returning to a favourite subject in however basic a form. The periodic table is a marvelous tool and a source of endless fascination. No

I just read this book as a reference when I took an exam. (I might read it again because I didn't pass the exam) On the lighter side of things, when I read this book (as an adult), it made so much sense! I mean, I learned A LOT from it. I don't know why I didn't like Chemistry in high school. (I do know why, my Chemistry teacher was a horrible terror teacher!) This book made learning Chemistry so much easier!
This book is NOT going to teach you chemistry or even begin to teach you to "do" any chemistry. What it will do is familiarize you with some key ideas or concepts and provide you with a very brief history or highlights of the history of chemistry. It is a nice book with which to prepare to begin to study chemistry or to have on hand while taking that first class to provide additional explanation of certain concepts.

Dreadful. Abysmal.

I can't say enough bad things about this book.

I never could bring myself to write a detailed takedown of this book, but it is packed with errors; they abound on practically every page. Some are obvious only to a person who has already learned the subject, rendering this book cruel and misleading, a profound disservice to its audience.

Original book had several typos that were identified in proof but not corrected before going to print. The 2nd edition is great for introductory chemistry, home schooling or for adults wanting to change careers.

Well, after finding three pretty absurd mathematical errors in the early parts of the book, I lost all faith that the author knows even basic arithmetic, let alone chemistry. Into the recycle bin with it!

This was okay, not edited very well though.
