9780199683970: Chemistry: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Review:

Review from previous edition Atkins wins his readers' attention simply through an elegant and lucid description of the subject he loves. ( Nature)

[T]he result is pretty much unimprovable. Recommending that every chemistry student in the world read a book by Peter Atkins feels a bit like recommending that everyone buy their books from Amazon. But what can you do? If this book had existed when I was an undergraduate, I'd have benefited tremendously. Now you can. ( Philip Ball, Nature Chemistry)

This is an excellent presentation, especially for laypeople and high school students or for a 'chemistry for poets' course. Highly recommended. ( R. E. Buntrock, Choice,)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 172 x 110 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Most people remember chemistry from their schooldays as largely incomprehensible, a subject that was fact-rich but understanding-poor, smelly, and so far removed from the real world of events and pleasures that there seemed little point, except for the most introverted, in coming to terms with its grubby concepts, spells, recipes, and rules. Peter Atkins wants to change all that. In this Very Short Introduction to Chemistry, he encourages us to look at chemistry anew, through a chemist s eyes, in order to understand its central concepts and to see how it contributes not only towards our material comfort, but also to human culture. Atkins shows how chemistry provides the infrastructure of our world, through the chemical industry, the fuels of heating, power generation, and transport, as well as the fabrics of our clothing and furnishings. By considering the remarkable achievements that chemistry has made, and examining its place between both physics and biology, Atkins presents a fascinating, clear, and rigorous exploration of the world of chemistry - its structure, core concepts, and exciting contributions to new cutting-edge technologies. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780199683970
