From the Publisher"There are a number of strengths to this book. Firstly, the usage of diagrams and key phrases/bullet points is excellent, making the book user friendly and educationally sound.
The book complements, rather than competes with, standard core text. It is distinct in its approach and should not be considered as just another organic chemistry book.
I imagine that this book will prove popular with undergraduates and I would be happy to recommend this book to my students - I am sure that their knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of chemisty would improve as a consequence."
"The author has made an effort to prsent the material clearly and to limit the text to what is essential ("pictures speak louder than words"). This often works very well."
"The book fufulls its aim of providing a short summary of organic chemistry for revision purposes."
Angewandte Chemie 2004
"Despite the book's small size, each chapter is thorough, with coversge of all important reactions found at first-year level... ideal for the first-year student wishing to revise... and priced and designed appropriately." The Times Higher Education Supplement, 2004
"Parsons has successfully distilled an entire 1200 page textbook to the essentials a student should take away from a full year of undergraduate organic chemistry"
"...this text provides an outline of what should be known and understood, including fundamental concepts and mechanisms"
"...the text can then allow the student to discern quickly which reactions/concepts they understand and which ones they don't."
