Physical Chemistry: Quanta, Matter, and Change 2nd edition takes an exciting and innovative molecular approach to the teaching of physical chemistry. The text focuses on our understanding of the properties of matter at the molecular level, and how these can be linked to the macroscopic world via statistical mechanics and thermodynamics.

For the second edition the structure of the text has been radically re-organised. Instead of being in chapters, material is broken down into 97 short 'topics' and related 'topics' are organised into 20 'focus on' sections. 'Roadmaps' at the beginning of each Focus show how topics are interrelated and help students to forge connections between different subjects. This novel approach is designed to improve the digestibility of the text for students and be more flexible for lecturers teaching the subject.

The distinguished author team presents the subject in a rigorous but accessible manner, allowing students to gain a thorough understanding of physical chemistry. The text includes numerous learning features, such as self-test questions, notes on good practice, online 'impact on' sections, and example boxes. Furthermore, the mathematics support has been significantly enhanced for this edition, by the inclusion of new 'chemist's toolkits', which link to the more in depth 'Mathematical background' sections.

The ground-breaking approach of the second edition of Physical Chemistry: Quanta, Matter, and Change will enable students to gain a deep understanding of this fascinating and important subject area.

He was the founding chairman of the Committee on Chemistry Education of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and was a member of IUPAC's Physical and Biophysical Chemistry Division. Peter was the 2016 recipient of the American Chemical Society's Grady-Stack Award for science journalism.

Julio de Paula is Professor of Chemistry, Lewis & Clark College. A native of Brazil, Professor de Paula received a B.A. degree in chemistry from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and a Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry from Yale University. His research activities encompass the areas of molecular spectroscopy, biophysical chemistry, and nanoscience. He has taught courses in general chemistry, physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry, instrumental analysis, and writing.

Ronald Friedman is Professor and Chair of the Chemistry Department at Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne. He received a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Virginia, a Ph.D. in chemistry from Harvard University, and did postdoctoral work at the University of Minnesota. He teaches general chemistry and physical chemistry at IPFW and has also taught at the University of Michigan and at the Technion (Israel). His research interests are theories of reaction dynamics.

Review:

The use of conceptual maps to relate the different topics is a very good idea * Dr Carlos Vazquez-Vazquez, University of Santiago de Compostela * By breaking the text up into 'topics' it is much easier to digest the background material required for more complex chemical subjects, which should be a useful aid for tutors and students * Dr Grant Hill, University of Glasgow * I like the book very much. It is clear, concise and pitched at just the right level. * Dr Simon T. Banks, University College London * --Ari Ginsberg, Professor of Management and Strategy, New York University
