A New Edition for the New Millennium:
Thorough Revision-Streamlined Text: The Second Edition reflects extensive revision and selective reduction. The result is a streamlined text that strikes the ideal balance between comprehensive coverage and manageable length.
More Biological Examples: In response to changing needs of students, Professor Jones has significantly increased the number of biological examples throughout the text.
Strengthened Coverage of Spectroscopy: The Second Edition offers a "preview" of NMR spectroscopy in Chapter 2, enriching the early discussion of structure and reactivity.
New Problems: New problems-many of them related to topics in spectroscopy and synthetic chemistry-have been added both to the text of the Second Edition and to the Supplementary Problems Set.
New edition of an introductory text by an author (affiliated with Princeton U.) who makes an effort to help students learn by asking "Where are we and why are we here?" and "What is the best way to do this?" The text is designed to be flexible with regard to topic order, and it is visually clear and attractive. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
