    5-0 out of 5 stars Still Valuable After All These Years
    I have taught Biochemistry and Enzymology at the undergraduate and graduate level for over 20 years, and have recommended this book every year, to every student. Although the field of biochemistry has changed greatly during this time period, certain fundamental concepts have not changed at all, and remain central to a true understanding of how to do biochemistry. These include acid/base chemistry, energetics, enzyme kinetics, spectrophotometry, and isotopes. Of these, the first three gnerally give beginning (and even some advanced)students the most difficulty. In "Biochemical Calculations" Dr. Segel provides excellent explanations of the most important aspects of these topics. He provides example problems, with the answers worked out in detail, and then at the end of each chapter he provides numerous practice problems (along with the answer). I know of no other source of such a variety of practice problems covering these topics. Any student who expends the effort to work through these problems will certainly gain the confidence to tackle the common quantitative problems associated with biochemistry. Clearly this is not intended to be a biochemistry textbook, but rather a supplemental resource, to be used to more fully understand the topics covered in the early chapters of all current biochemistry texts.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Wretched...
    This is an essential book for anyone looking to practice biochemical problems -- if only for the reason that books with as many practice problems are hard to find. If you're a true biochemist and love the subject ad will continue on with graduate work or careers in biochemistry, this may be the book for you. For everyone else... probably not. This book is very minimalist. No frills. It has an answer key to the practice problems but lacks any explainations to the answer. Reviews of the material covered in the book are scant at best and very technical. Few examples from real biochemical situations in living organisms are used. It does nothing to make you interested in the subject. The book also uses units such as normality (N) and Calories (C) rather than molarity (M) and Joules (J), the more modern and internationally accepted units of biochemical equations. I have also encountered typos and mistakes in the book in my studies. The only reason why this book is still published is that there are few other books available that offer so many practice problems. If you're looking for practice on any possible biochemical calculation, buy this book. When you're done with it, compost it. Or get $2 back by selling it to the local college bookstore. Biochemical Calculations wouldn't be so bad if a new edition would be written. Biology is a rapidly changing science, and a book that is now going on 25 years old can't compete with the newer and more reader friendly texts.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beginning Biochemical Calculations
    Segel's book is a concise and very clear discussion of the most important mathematical concepts needed for biochemistry. Each Topic is discussed briefly, and step by step example problems are presented. Practice problems end each chapter and require a thorough understanding of the topic covered. An excellent tutorial presented in an extremely clear manner. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars so-so
    Like any other text. To pricy if you ask me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best beginners book in market!!
    Sperling's book stands out as the most useful polymer science text, compiling essential elements of varied physical properties and behaviour. The third edition has up to date material on all aspects of polymer physics including chapters on polymer surfaces and interfaces as well as on multicomponent polymer systems and liquid crystalline polymers. In my opinion, as a beginners guide, the book is definitely outscores over all other texts in market including Billmeyer, Painter Coleman, Rodriquez, etc. The book also contains a good description of various polymer characterization techniques.

    The material covered is adequate to provide basic information about each field in polymer physics, and the textbook has enough material to be useful for two or three courses. The author presents a lot of tables in the book, that succintly summarize important points related to that topic. Coupled with Strobl's book, which has slightly advanced description of polymer physics, and Doi's Introduction to polymer physics, which has mathematically intensive description of statistical mechanics of polymers, you have three texts to teach you essentially everything there is to know in Polymer Physics!! (Perhaps you can add a text for Polymer Rheology, say by Larson!) ... Read more

    Book Description

    Understanding Molecular Simulation: From Algorithms to Applications explains the physics behind the "recipes" of molecular simulation for materials science. Computer simulators are continuously confronted with questions concerning the choice of a particular technique for a given application. A wide variety of tools exist, so the choice of technique requires a good understanding of the basic principles. More importantly, such understanding may greatly improve the efficiency of a simulation program. The implementation of simulation methods is illustrated in pseudocodes and their practical use in the case studies used in the text.

    Since the first edition only five years ago, the simulation world has changed significantly -- current techniques have matured and new ones have appeared.This new edition deals with these new developments; in particular, there are sections on:

    ú Transition path sampling and diffusive barrier crossing to simulaterare events
    ú Dissipative particle dynamic as a course-grained simulation technique
    ú Novel schemes to compute the long-ranged forces
    ú Hamiltonian and non-Hamiltonian dynamics in the context constant-temperature and constant-pressure molecular dynamics simulations
    ú Multiple-time step algorithms as an alternative for constraints
    ú Defects in solids
    ú The pruned-enriched Rosenbluth sampling, recoil-growth, and concerted rotations for complex molecules
    ú Parallel tempering for glassy Hamiltonians

    Examples are included that highlight current applications and the codes of case studies are available on the World Wide Web. Several new examples have been added since the first edition to illustrate recent applications. Questions are included in this new edition. No prior knowledge of computer simulation is assumed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for New Grad Students
    This book is how I bootstrapped my way into being a molecular simulationist. Anyone who can program in some language can get started writing simple routines for the basic MD and MC simulations.

    I do Monte Carlo simulations at Princeton, and found this book to be the most helpful available for getting my research started. It is my most common reference, and is used extensively in writing background information for various research documents.

    However, after you have written your first few codes, you will pass the level of this book and need to move on. I use it less now than I did my first year.

    Every student in my group (Panagiotopoulos) has this book I think. And like me, they started with it, but moved on.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A nice disappointment
    The title of the book is overly ambitious and falls short on its promises. The book is a good introduction to Molecular Mechanics (MM), Molecular Dynamics (MD) and Monte Carlo (MC) methods, with detailed descriptions of the methods used and FORTRAN (pseudo)code, covering from the basics to some middle-level and some advanced algorithms.
    But it does NOT cover all the fields of Molecular Modelling, just the three mentioned (MM, MD and MC), there's no coverage of quantum mechanics methods, nor QSAR or other technologies. And, while it described the algorithms, I can't think of it going all the way through up to building applications. For this, Rapaport's makes a better job, and for a general intro to Molecular Modelling, Grant & Richards' Computational Chemistry is more comprehensive (albeit at a more superficial level). Nor does it provide much detail on the methods used in modelling biological macromolecules, an increasing application field for the methods discussed in the book.
    All in all, this book fails to satisfy its cover title, it won't introduce to the whole field (just the areas of MM, MD and MC) nor does it go up to application level. But it IS a REAL GOOD introduction to the subjects covered and their basic algorithms,
    with sample code, detailed descriptions and plenty of references to specialized articles, texts and resources.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction
    This book is an excellent introduction to the field of molecular dynamics simulation. It is easy to follow for a scientist entering the field and at the same time contains overview of most critical topics in MD simulation. The book's major goal is to describe how to simulate liquids, however it also mentions briefly the methods for gas and liquid simulations. List of references for further readings is very useful and complete.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great book for begginers.
    This book covers many interesting topics in molecular simulation, both Monte Carlo and M.D. It focuses on understanding the main ideas rather than giving long codes. It's a good place to start, but it also covers some ideas not found in many other books. When I try to extend my molecular dynamics program I always check what Frenkel and Smit have to say about it. ... Read more

    Book Description

    A kitchen is no different from most science laboratories and cookery may properly be regarded as an experimental science. Food preparation and cookery involve many processes that are well described by the physical sciences. Understanding the chemistry and physics of cooking should lead to improvements in performance in the kitchen. For those of us who wish to know why certain recipes work and perhaps more importantly why others fail, appreciating the underlying physical processes will inevitably help in unraveling the mysteries of the "art" of good cooking. Dr. Peter Barham has long been involved in popularizing science in Great Britain where he has lectured and been on radio and television shows on the science of food. In 1999, he won the IOP Prize for Promoting the Public Awareness of Physics.

    FROM THE REVIEWS:

    "This year, at last, we have a book which shows how a practical understanding of physics and chemistry can improve culinary performance . . .[Barham] first explains, in a lucid non-textbooky way, the principles behind taste, flavour and the main methods of food preparation, and then gives fool-proof basic recipes for dishes from roast leg of lab to chocolate soufflé." -FINANCIAL TIMES WEEKEND

    "This book is full of interesting and relevant facts that clarify the techniques of cooking that lead to the texture, taste and aroma of good cuisine. As a physicist the author introduces the importance of models in preparing food, and their modification as a result of testing (tasting)." -THE PHYSICIST

    "Focuses quite specifically on the physics and food chemistry of practical domestic cooking in terms of real recipes. Industrial food technologists and process engineers will not find design equations or process flowsheets. Instead they, and those with more immediate home cooking interests, will find a clear, fascinating, informative and serviceable description of the scientific phenomena occurring during domestic cooking, and how to exploit an understanding thereof to achieve results consistently, adapt recipes confidently and adeptly rescue catastrophes. Each chapter starts with an overview of the scientific issues relevant to that food group, e.g. toughness of meat, thickening of sauces, collapse of sponge cakes and soufflés. This is followed by actual recipes, with the purpose behind each ingredient and technique explained, and each recipe followed by a table describing some common problems, causes and solutions. Each chapter then ends with suggested experiments to illustrate some of the scientific principles exploited in the chapter." -FOOD & DRINK NEWSLETTER

    "Will be stimulating for amateur cooks with an interest in following recipes and understanding how they work. They will find anecdotes and, sprinkled throughout the book, scientific points of information...The book is a pleasant read and is an invitation to become better acquainted with the science of cooking." -NATURE

    "You do not have to be a chemist or a physicist to cook a meal, any more than you need a qualification in engineering to drive a car; but in both cases a little technical knowledge can help when things go wrong. That is the reasoning behind this odd volume that combines an explanation of the scientific principles of cooking with a down-to-earth guide to kitchen utensils, ... some experiments to try at home, and a random collection of around 40 recipes." -THE ECONOMIST

    "A physicist at Bristol University, Barham combines a love of science with a passion for cooking (and food) into this small and enjoyable book...Even if you prefer not to turn your kitchen into a laboratory, you will find this book worthwhile." -SCIENCE ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great stuff for the science-minded cook
    Fascinating exploration into the physics of cooking, written in an engaging and detailed style. Probably better for the scientist who cooks than for the cook who's into science, since the language is sometimes a little dense for the layperson. Worth working through, though.

    One caveat: the author is British, and recipes, measurements, and terms are geared for the British/European cook. This means you'll find a complete explanation of sausage rolls and nothing about popcorn. Just FYI.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but contains a mistake
    The author does a good job describing the scientific (especially biochemical) basis behind cooking. However, he makes a fundamental mistake regarding thermodynamics when he states that metals tend to have higher heat capacities than water, and therefore take longer to heat up in an oven at a fixed temperature. This is wrong for two major reasons: a) metals tend to have lower heat capacities than water, not higher, and b) metals have extraordinarily high thermal conductivities, speeding their heating rates up dramatically. Anybody can verify that a piece of metal will heat up much more quickly than an equal mass of water in an oven at a fixed temperature. Perhaps it shouldn't, but mistakes like this one make me suspicious of the validity of the rest of the work.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great, but everything is metric!
    I know we in the US are behind in catching up to the metric system, but certainly our sheer population and market size dictate that an edition edited for our us should be released. Other than this, the book is excellent as an introduction to the subject of food science. I will argue though, that science is never a substitute for the masters. Cooking can be viewed as a science (like here), or an art (as in the great chefs collections).

    4-0 out of 5 stars chemistry 101
    Don't buy this book if you're looking for a cookbook. The recipes listed in this book are bare bones basic, with no flare. I felt like I was back in chemistry 101 while reading this book, and could only read a little at a time in order to digest all that was presented. Barham gives an excellent description and portrayal of fats, sugars, starches, gluten, proteins, etc., but doesn't flesh out his recipes at all. Each item in his recipes is there for a purpose, and he explains each of their purposes. But I felt that after the basics were presented, he could have added some extra ingredients to jazz up the dishes a little. This could have shown what the 'unnecessary' ingredients do to enhance a dish and how they alter the chemical composition.
    After reading his book though, I feel as though I truly understand the processes going on in my kitchen, and somehow, it has taken away the 'art' of cooking. I can't just go play in my kitchen now - I feel like I'm doing a chemistry experiment:)
    The book is presented in the metric system, along with British terms that make it hard to follow every now and then.
    I would really recommend this book to upper high school students as well as college freshman for the practical chemistry application.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Gets right to the science with little digression
    I recently purchased "On Food and Cooking", hoping to find a good, comprehensive book on food science. While there was a lot of good detail in that book, much of the detail was buried among less interesting historical digressions, and the space taken up by those digressions seemed to be depriving me of some details I really did care about.

    In contrast, "The Science of Cooking" makes no pretense of being encyclopedic in its coverage of food science. Instead, the focus is directly on the chemical and physical processes at work in the kitchen. As such, it succeeds admirably, and much of the information that seemed "missing" from "On Food and Cooking" here seems simply absent because it is outside the scope of the work.

    While the introductory material gets a little condescending at times (I mean, who actually needs to be told what an atom is?), and some of the sidebars get overly technical for most people (do you really care about differential equations?), such sections are easily ignored. The few really queasy technical discussions are even set in a different background color to let you know they may not be for the faint-of-heart (and the rest of those colored sidebars are quite readable and interesting on their own).

    Be aware that the author is a scientist, not a chef. This book is tightly focused on chemical and physical effects of ingredients. Things like flavor and food safety are not part of the discussion, beyond a few passing mentions. Most notably, the author repeatedly demonstrates a lack of understanding of the effects of salt on flavor, and talks of things like clarifying cold stocks with raw egg whites without a discussion of slmonella (which is admittedly perceived as less of a problem in the author's native Britain).

    The book is organized like a textbook, with sidebars, tables, and even little experiments at the end of each chapter. There are useful conversion tables, and charts on various topics. It is easy to skip over what you find uninteresting and to skip directly to the information you need when using the book for reference.

    The information here is valuable, concise, and well-presented. You'll find yourself understanding things like the difference between saturated and unsaturated fats (and why you should care as a cook), how foams form (and why they collapse), why and how cooking affects flavor and texture, etc.

    I was able to read through this book very quickly and easily, while learning (and even retaining) more information than I normally would from a non-fiction book of this sort. This book is definitely an excellent overview of the processes involved in cooking, and indeed, probably contains as much information as most of us are ever likely to use on the subject.

    Why 4 stars and not 5, you ask? There are some important omissions that bothered me. The most glaring examples are that there's no discussion of osmotic pressure, or the role of pH in various processes, topics that "On Food and Cooking" covered admirably. The section on cooking utensils and appliances is largely a waste of space, in part because the author is British and doesn't have access to many of the alternatives that have become common in serious American kitchens. Be warned, the book is very British in its use of language. You will need to know that "hob" is a British English for "stove", for example. Also, all of the recipes use metric weights and volumes, so should you actually wish to follow them (not something I'd particularly recommend), you'll need an accurate metric food scale and measuring cups. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars NICE TEXT FOR UNDERGRAD INORGANIC CHEMISTRY
    With this edition of "Advanced Inorganic Chemistry", Albert Cotton and his co-authors have proved that they kept track of all the recent developments in the field.
    This text provides clear and balanced coverage, as it applies to Inorganic Chemistry. Every branch of the course was browsed, and with generous details too. In addition to the general principles and laws, there are updated information on: Atomic Structures of elements, Chemical Bondings and related associations; as well as Chemical Equilibria and Enthalpy.
    Together with its insight in Nuclear Chemistry, the details this book provided on inorganic elements and compounds is worthy of praise. It is a fine textbook, which anyone who has the basic knowledge of elementary chemistry should be glad to read.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
    The 5th edition of this book had been compulsory reading during my undergraduate inorganic chemistry courses: it was the inorganic chemistry bible. This edition fails to reach the high standard of its predecessor. In fact, it isn't even a good advanced inorganic chemistry text. Much of the really useful stuff that forms the basis of an understanding of inorganic chemistry has been omitted in favour of niche topics. The book would be better called 'Advances in Inorganic Chemistry' or 'Selected Topics in Inorganic Chemistry'.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as expected
    This was one of the best book for inorganic chemistry, but this edition is very different from the previous ones. Many useful chapters have been done away with; they have been replaced with chapters rather poor, especially those about catalysis.
    I advise the fifth edition, which is much better, even if it's quite old: the updates of new edition don't offset its flaws.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent book
    I have read this book with great interest. I think this book is marvellous in describing the features of three dimentional inorganic molecules.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A real advance in inorganic chemistry!
    The first editions of this book made a real revolution in inorganic chemistry. The approach in this book has not realy changed during the years but I still think it is a must-have book. It is easy to read with a lot of data, structures and tables. In my oppinion it should be combined with Greenwood's "Chemistry of the elements" and Douglas' et al. "Concepts and models of inorganic chemistry". ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely a masterpiece
    I'm surprised by the online reviews for this book so far and it seems to me they are written by people who do not fully understand (or appreciate) the kinetic, thermodynamic, thermal issues, mass transport, fluid dynamic or reactor design aspects of OMVPE. Whether you're starting out or have been in the field for a while, this book is a must have. Stringfellow is one of the few people who understands the finer aspects of OMVPE. His qualitative and quantitative treatment of concepts is lucid, accurate and comprehensive. The older edition was getting out of date. The newer one adds information generated in the recent past. I would suggest browsing through the book and rating it yourself. You will not be disappointed.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not a particularly useful text
    If you are unfamiliar with the field of OMVPE this text would serve as a good introduction. It does indeed cover the fundamentals of the OMVPE process. However, that is about all it covers. For those in industry or academia who are already acquainted with OMVPE, this book adds very little to your knowledge or understanding. The theoretical and mathematical treatment of the various issues listed is practically nonexistent. The sections that actually contain formulae are few and far between. Again, this is great if you are just starting to learn; this is rather disappointing if you are looking for an in-depth treatment of OMVPE. The one saving grace is that there are extensive lists of references that you can track down to find the details that are left out of the book itself. That's a lot of money for just a reference list though.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stringfellow is the authority on OMVPE. Great Book.
    This is a great book if you want to know the science of OMVPE. Stringfellow is considered by many people to be the authority on this subject. You can't go wrong with this book. It's referenced in nearly every OMVPE journal article I have read.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Buy This Book If You're Using Someone Else's Money!!
    This has come to be used as a text or reference in the field of compound semiconductor epitaxy only because of the absence of anything better! This is a cursory introduction to a very broad field by a man whose own experiences have little relevance or bearing on the state of the art. A fair attempt is made at covering the basics of the subject and a good number of relevant publications are cited. Unfortunately the book has all the charm and utility of the author which cannot be quantatively evaluated without the use of negative numbers! I have found a good use for this book in my laboratory though, as one of my workbenches had a short leg under which this fit nicely! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Review for any AP Test!!
    This book is the best study aid I've ever used before. I actually used the 02-03 edition, but the book has remained essentially unchanged for the past few years. I didn't have an AP Chem class, only Chem 3, which did only so much to prepare me for the test. Instead I read through this book 2-3 times (which actually didn't take that long after I read it the first time) and did a few practice free reponse tests. I devoted all my studying time to this test (and not to my English Lit or US History, both of which I got 4's on), and doing this got me a solid 5 on the AP Chem. There were maybe 2-3 questions on the entire test I didn't know. Overall, this book covers almost every aspect that the test can test you on, with the exception of something that has to do w/ absorbity (which is new to the test, and I chose not to do that free response problem), and some lab questions, which you must learn on your own in a real lab situation. If you are taking the AP Chem test, buy this book or rent it from your local library (like me). It will be well worth it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Helped me get a 5!
    I took AP Chemistry last year and yesterday I just got my scores. I got a 5 in chemistry! I was shocked because I had a horrible chemistry teacher who told us nuclear chemistry, organic chemistry, and labs wouldn't be on the test which is why he didn't cover it! This book (the 02-03 edition) helped me significantly because of all its practice questions and nicely explained explainations. It makes chemistry seem so easy and if you memorize everything in that book (and know labs), you will ace the AP test. There were only 4 questions out of 75 on the AP test that I didn't know! Another excellent book was the CliffNotes book for those of you who are like me and had a chemistry teacher who did not do any of the labs. That book gives a lot of details on the labs so you will get all the lab questions right even if you've never done a lab. But one important thing to remember is you can not cram with APs. I started studying 3 months with this book before the test and I took a lot of real practice tests.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great book
    this was an awesome book. If you read it in conjunction with the lectures and prepare yourself decently this book will help you get a 5. It did for me.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Preparation Guide
    This book is an excellent preparation guide for the AP chemistry exam, it includes hundreds of practice AP questions similar to the national exam itself. It is a quick read if you are preparing late for the exam and has a very organized and user friendly format dividing the sections in to the main concepts covered by the AP exam and offerring excellent preparation questions in those areas. The difficulty level of the questions however is open to discussion as some questions in the book are slightly less difficult or complex as the questions asked on the actual national exam, however the majority are equivalent in difficulty to the exam. As for the free response section of the exam, this book provides excellent sample essay questions very similar to the exam in its intricacies and meticulous detailing of the questions forcing one to think deeply in to an answer. The book however does not provide answers that explain the answer to the question in great depth however with the information provided by the answer, one who is knowledged in chemistry can conclude what a proper AP exam answer would read. A main dividing factor between the free response section of exams in this book and of the real exam is that the real exam's "equilibrium problem" has many more parts to complete than that of the samples. The samples provide only 4 or 5 parts to the mathematical problems, whereas on the exam you can expect to find problems with 7 to 8 parts, and some of the types of questions encountered in the 4 extra parts are never discussed in this book. The exam takes the mathematical questions to a higher level than this book and requires one to analyze further the situation of a problem and provide further calculations to demonstrate understanding, this princeton review book does not discuss this. However, all together this book has great value and i highly reccomend it for any brave enough to challenge the AP chemistry exam, it is an essential material for its practice questions and was a cornerstone for me to score my 5 on the AP chemistry national exam. My advice to those aspiring AP chemistry exammers is to buy as many books with practice exams as you can and take as many full length exams as possible, they are the most helpful tool that you can find, and the princeton review offers this exceptionally.

    4-0 out of 5 stars decent review
    This book deserves credit for being concise, but comes up short on the coverage of some areas, such as descriptive chemistry. In addition, it has some material that is no longer on the AP test, such as root mean square speed of a gas molecule. Nevertheless, this review is about as good as it gets for any test prep company. Buy this book. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars You could find a better physical chemistry text elsewhere
    Out of curiosity, I have read some of the reviews on this book and the first thing that came to my attention was how a couple reviewers mentioned that they believe that those who give bad reviews simply had a hard time with the subject matter. I, however, must disagree. When I took two semesters of physical chemistry last year I had absolutely no trouble with the subject matter. I had seen most of it in my previous physics classes, and I found the math and derivations rather simple (I'm a math major and a physics major). Yet, I still believe that this is by far not the best science text I have ever read. I believe that this text (as with most chemistry books that I have read) could be far more concise. My biggest problem, was the lack of SIMPLE explanation. What I mean by that statement, is that in many instances there is little to no explanation of what the variables in each equation represent, and when the meaning of each variable is explained, the book is so long winded, that by the time one reaches the equation, they've forgotten what they were told the variables did represent.How can anyone understand an explanation when they're not told what values are being spoke of? For those who already know the subject matter, this little fact can be easily overlooked, but for those trying to learn physical chemistry nothing could be worse. Also, this book seems to lack mathematical rigor. Many equations are derived using a lot of hand waving. Why even bother? If the author is not going to offer a completely rigorous derivation, then he should just give a simple English explanation. On, the good side, I think that the book is well organized and has enough illustrations to guide the student through the basic theory, and concepts.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not for AMATEUR
    Professor Atkins wrote an excelent text about Physical Chemistry, covering the areas of this subjetc being extremely rigorous in the concepts and in the math explanations. In this book you will find Thermodynamics (First and Second Laws), Kinetic Chemistry, Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases, Equilibrium, Solids, Liquids, Solutions, Kinetic of Complex Reactions, Molecular Simetry, Molecular Struture, Electrochemical Systems, Quantum Mechanics (a very important subject that every student should know), Spectroscopy and many other things. I am really disappointed to define this book with 20, or 30 words. It's a really complex book, and it is for someone who wants to travel in the exciting world of Chemistry, to study and learn the truth about this science. You won't learn Physics or Chemistry without knowing, before, Derivatives, Integrals (Calculus), Linear Algebra. Phisycal Chemistry has an appendix (with bibliography) to cover this subjects in order to become clear the text. If you are an amateur, do not buy this book. I think that amateurs shouldn't send their comments to here: "Oh, it's difficult to read and understand..." ---> You should study before to read a book written by a member of the Division of Physical Chemistry of IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry), instead of sending insignificant comments to here. I am fighting with this book, and if you buy it, you'll too.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not a very good book
    Mathematicians would favor this book. The text is dense and dry. The material is presented in the most boring manner possible. Atkins prefers to explain himself with equations rather than words. The subject matter is not thoroughly explored. No concepts are placed into the "big picture." At best, this book could serve as a decent reference for a chemist or physicist already familiar with the topics and therefore only in need of review. Learning physical chemistry for the first time using this book is a serious chore. I honestly believe that physical chemistry can be a fun, exciting, and challenging subject that is worth learning. This book fails to deliver the material in a manner that does anything but annoy and frustrate. This problem is only compounded by the fact that there are numerous mathematical errors present both in the text and in the solutions of selected problems. If you are stuck using this book because it was required for a class, I suggest you find supplementary material that elaborates better on the many areas in which this book is lacking.

    3-0 out of 5 stars An Honest Opinion...
    After reading all the other reviews on this book, one might notice the large gap in opinion on this text. And I think that is justified...For those who really enjoy P-Chem and pour alot of energy and time into the course, this book should be fine; but for those of us who are not particularly fascinated with the inner thermodynamic or kinetic workings of the molecules we've come to love, this book isn't necessarily as explanatory as it could be. Also, the professor one has makes a BIG difference in this course. If one has a professor who uses this book as simply a reference to his/her teaching/lecturing then the book makes a great reference material. But for those professors who are new (like mine) and expect undergraduate CHEM majors to leave their course understanding every single facet of the P-Chem cosmos, using this book as their Bible and lecturing straight from it, then this book is not so great (pretty bad, in fact). However, I must say, the text varies in readability and depth of explanation. Some parts give sufficient explanation and other portions leave students feeling confused at least. That's why I give this book a 3 star rating. I think other books may be more beneficial.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Gold Standard of Physical Chemistry Texts
    Those who have rated this text poorly must do so not becuase of the quality of the text, but because of their appernt dislike of the subject. If you need to learn and understand central concepts of physical chemistry, you need look no farther then Atkins.
    Atkin's text is the gold standard of the field, lovingly writen and orginized, text books (in any subject) simply dont get much better than this.
    Disliking Physical Chemistry is one thing, but blamming this book is nonsence. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars FINALLY a great Chemistry book!
    I'm on my knees thanking God for this book every night. I recently needed to brush up on my Chemistry. (I had Chem I in college.) I tried two other books before this one and they both sucked. The first one was Barron's Chemistry the Easy Way. HA! It was extremely confusing and poorly edited (wrong answers in the chapter tests). The second one was Chemistry Demystified and while it was much easier to follow, it also was poorly edited (lots of typos, mistakes, etc.)

    After buying two really crappy books, I was ready to pull my hair out. But that's when I found The Complete Idiot's Guide to Chemistry.

    While I did have a Chemistry class in college, I struggled through most of it. And I am really bad at math. So words like factor-label conversion and significant figures sent me into a complete panic. But the way Mr. Guch writes is so easy to follow and so non-threatening! Not to mention funny! He tells you exactly what you need to know and exactly how to do the calculations you need to do.

    I cannot tell you how much I absolutely love this book. I am THISCLOSE to randomly spreading these books around anywhere struggling chemistry students live. If you or your child is having trouble with Chemistry, PLEASE get this book. You will not be sorry.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Buy the book!
