Review quote

"Any undergraduate who could develop all of the skills in this book would make a fine chemist. [...] it is my view that a book of this type should be primarily for students -after all, skills development should be a personal mission for undergraduate students, and I would recommend any of mine to have a copy of this book on their bookshelf." - David Smith, Chemistry Worldshow more
