From the Back Cover:

LISTEN! CAN YOU HEAR THE MUSIC?

Did you ever hear the melody of a favorite song coming over the sound system at a local mall? You nay have trouble recognizing the song at first. In the World of ambient sound, the notes are all there, but often there's no music.

Reproducing the notes is not the same as making music. The same is true of the art of chemistry. As you take general chemistry, you will be immersed in atoms and molecules - the notes - of chemistry. Understanding the roles of atoms and molecules in every facet of chemistry will reveal to you the richness of the chemical world - its music.

The author's goal in this third edition of Chemistry is to present the basic concepts of chemistry in a way that reveals the great chemical symphony that underlies our molecular world. Being able to hear this music will help you succeed in this course. More importantly, it will serve you well in your future career!
