About the Author

Kenneth Whitten is professor emeritus at the University of Georgia (UGA). Dr. Whitten received his A.B. at Berry College, M.S. at the University of Mississippi, and Ph.D. at the University of Illinois. He taught at Tulane, the University of Southwestern Louisiana, the Mississippi State College of Women, and the University of Alabama before joining the UGA faculty as assistant professor and coordinator of general chemistry in 1967. He remained coordinator of general chemistry throughout his UGA career until his retirement in 1998. His numerous awards include the G.E. Philbrook Chemistry Teacher of the Year Award, the Outstanding Honors Professor, the Franklin College Outstanding Teacher of the Year, the General Sandy Beaver Teaching Award, and a Senior Teaching Fellowship. An award was established in Dr. Whitten's honor in 1998 celebrating outstanding teaching assistants in UGA's department of chemistry.

Raymond Davis is a University Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas, Austin. He received his B.S. at the University of Kansas in 1960, his Ph.D. from Yale University in 1965, and was a Cancer Research Scientist at the Roswell Park Memorial Institute from 1964 to 1968. His awards include the Minnie Stevens Piper Professorship in 1992, the Jean Holloway Award in Chemistry Teaching in 1996, and (five times) the Outstanding Teacher Award given by campus freshman honor societies. He was an inaugural member of the University's Academy of Distinguished Teachers in 1995.

M. Larry Peck, Professor Emeritus at Texas A & M University, received his Ph.D. from Montana State University in 1971. He won the Chemical Manufacturers Association Catalyst Award in 2000, Texas A & M's Association of Former Students Distinguished Achievement Award in Chemistry Teaching in 2002, and the Division of Chemical Education's Outstanding Service to the Division Award in 2007. Until his retirement in 2006, Dr. Peck taught science at all levels and directed programs designed to improve the teaching of physical science programs now known in Texas as "integrated physics and chemistry." The resource materials developed in these workshops are being used as models for other state-funded teacher training programs.

George Stanley, Cyril & Tutta Vetter Alumni Professor at Louisiana State University, received his B.S. from the University of Rochester in 1975 and his Ph.D. from Texas A & M University in 1979. He has extensive research experience in inorganic chemistry. George has won numerous awards and accolades, both nationally and locally, including the NSF Special Creativity Award in 1994, the LSU University Excellence in Science Teaching Award in 1995, the LSU College of Basic Sciences Center for Excellence in Science Teaching each year since 1997, and the Baton Rouge-ACS Charles E. Coates Award in 1999. He recently was named 2005-2006 TIAA-CREF Service Learning Fellow due to his longtime commitment to service-learning programs at LSU.

I highly recommend studying chemistry, but with all due respect to Mr. Whitten, I definitely cannot recommend trying to get this book from here. It was incorrectly listed as available used, and my order was subsequently cancelled. They did have the title new but refused to substitute it for me to cover their mistake. After a few days of not acting on my question, they offered me a small discount, later questioned it again, just before handing me to a supervisor that finally told me that they are now sold out and the online listing that a new book is still available for shipment is incorrect. I don't think I need to say more about their customer service, I'll let you respected review readers focus on chemistry again. 5 stars for Whitten, no stars for this bookstore.
