From the Publisher:

The second edition of this best-selling text builds upon what made the book so widely adopted in the first place: student accessibility, readability, an effective problem-solving program, and flexibility. The authors understand that most students have their sights set beyond the chemistry laboratory. Thus, they have put chemistry in the context of applications and everyday life -- making the book and course student accessible. With the intent of gaining student confidence, the writing style is relaxed, friendly -- and readable for the student with no scientific background. The problem- solving program maintains a wealth of problems and worked-out examples, including McMurry's innovative ballpark questions that test the student's understanding of concepts and develop their analytical thinking skills. The authors have made the text as flexible as possible. This is especially evident in the biological chemistry chapters, where structure and function are integrated.
