Over the years Bettelheim, Brown, and March's INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC AND BIOCHEMISTRY has become the most respected and best-selling Organic and Biochemistry textbook on the market. Known for the successful way it meets the needs of students who take this course--from re-entry students to those heading directly into careers in the allied health fields--the book is acclaimed for the way it provides students a solid chemistry foundation that will serve them well long after they leave the course. In this edition, the authors continue the hallmarks that have made their book a classic in the field: a pedagogically rich learning framework; a wide variety of medical and biological applications; a visually dynamic art program, innovative "Chemical Connections" essays that focus on current issues in organic and biochemistry; and exceptionally strong and varied end-of-chapter problems. At the same time, they have extended their student focus by providing a greatly expanded interactive CD-ROM, as well as a new "Career Corner" portion on the Book Companion Web Site designed to help students make the connections between the chemistry they are learning today and their future careers. This text gives students a solid foundation of the chemistry of the human body, consistently demonstrating that a strong background in molecular structure and properties leads to better understanding of biochemical interactions. The strength of this book is its readability, its application to normal human biochemical pathways, as well as discussing biochemical conditions present in diseases.

Frederick Bettelheim was a distinguished university research professor at Adelphi University and a visiting scientist at the National Eye Institute. He co-authored seven editions of INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, and several Laboratory Manuals. He is also the author of EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY and co-author of numerous monographs and research articles. Professor Bettelheim received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis.Review:
"I found that the book was written at a very appropriate level for my students. It was very easy to read and understand and some of the problems in the back of the chapter took the information to a more advanced level, if the teacher wanted to use them. The topics in this manuscript are much more clearly presented than our current text, without extraneous information, and the examples are very relevant to the text. Also, the Chemical Connections are interesting and will bring home the usefulness of the information to the students. I think students would enjoy this textbook for its clear explanations and interesting information."
"By having Chapter 3 devoted to Nuclear Chemistry, the students feel like they're exploring new territory. In addition, its coverage of medical imaging techniques is greatly appealing to the medical/healthcare fields, making them feel as if the course is tailored to their interests. In general, my students find the writing in your text very readable and the explanations clear."
"The major strength of this book is its flexibility. It provides the instructor with the ability to go deeply into a topic (such as alkene mechanisms) or to cover it briefly. This allows for great flexibility in the course without sacrificing students ability to student further chapters. I would recommend this text to a colleague since it is the most clearly written and best organized of the available books."
