Using a straight forward and broad approach this book incorporates both physical, inorganic and organic chemistry at degree level. It is essentially divided into three sections, the first covering general chemical philosophy, the fundamental vocabulary and essential physical chemistry. The second section introduces the organic topics of interest to life scientists. It fills the need for a broad low-level coverage of chemistry in the field of degree level life science and should become required undergraduate reading.
