Book Description

Review McQuarrie's book is extremely well-written, the order of topics is logical, and it does a?great job with both introductory material and more advanced concepts.??Students of all skill levels will be able to learn from this book. --Mark Kearley, Florida State UniversityBecause I have long appreciated McQuarrie s writing style and straightforward approach in his classic Physical Chemistry text, I naturally jumped at the chance to use his General Chemistry text in my classes. The new book does not disappoint; McQuarrie s elegant, yet step-by-step manner permeates the text. --Tom Kuntzleman, Spring Arbor UniversityAtoms First seems to be the flavor of the year in chemistry textbooks, but many of them seem to be little more than rearrangement of the chapters. It takes a master like McQuarrie to go back to the drawing board and create a logical development from smallest to largest that makes sense to students. - --Hal Harris, University of Missouri-St LouisBecause I have long appreciated McQuarrie s writing style and straightforward approach in his classic Physical Chemistry text, I naturally jumped at the chance to use his General Chemistry text in my classes.
