Wulfsberg successfully organizes descriptive inorganic chemistry by class-of-compound and by reaction or property type, and not element-by-element or group-by-group. Periodic trends in the reaction or property type e.g. hydrolysis among the members of a particular class of compounds e.g. halides of the elements are presented and related to the fundamental properties of the different elements involved. To explain these trends, basic principles of inorganic chemistry are then introduced. With this organization, principles grow out of descriptive chemistry and are then used to predict more descriptive chemistry. This book should be of interest to students on first year courses in inorganic chemistry.
