Written by Jim Brady, an author well known for his ability to communicate chemistry, and Fred Senese, the architect of the most visited general chemistry web site, this book and its media are designed to support a variety of backgrounds. It maintains its hallmark feature of accurate, lucid, and interesting explanations of the basic concepts of chemistry as well as its comprehensive coverage and aid to readers in developing problem solving skills.

Key new features include a new chapter on materials and a new website with enhanced learning aids that can be customized according to background

  • Flow charts, such as "Problem Analysis at a Glance," create a visual overview of key concepts.
  • Each chapter opens with a "This Chapter in Context" feature that creates a framework for understanding how everything fits together
