Succeed in your course with the help of this proven best-seller! John McMurry's ORGANIC CHEMISTRY is consistently praised as the most clearly written book available for the course. In John McMurry's words: "I wrote this book because I love writing. I get great pleasure and satisfaction from taking a complicated subject, turning it around until I see it clearly from a new angle, and then explaining it in simple words." Through his lucid writing and ability to show the beauty and logic of organic chemistry, McMurry makes learning enjoyable. The highest compliment that can be given to a chemistry book applies to McMurry: It works!

Review:

"McMurry's greatest strength to this reviewer is the level of presentation, the emphasis on physical principles. I think the questions in McMurry both in text and end of chapter are excellent."

"The material has a far greater biological focus, which is done successfully. This is a big plus in my mind. . . . the chemistry is presented with a high degree of accuracy. There are certainly no major problems."

"The chapter problems are excellent and challenge students at many levels. Chapter summaries are well written. The 'Why This Chapter' lead-ins are superb."

"The author has always produced a well written book that is easy to read. That is a comment I have heard from both other colleagues and students alike. This has always been a general strength of the text. I was happy to see the inclusion of the 'Focus On' topics as supplements to the chapter's material to excite the students about other topics in organic chemistry related to the chapter material. I think these are quite informative for the students."

"We have been using McMurry's text for the past several years here at UA, and I am, therefore, quite familiar with it. The general strengths include the readability and a wealth of good problems."
