"Eminently appropriate for our students. The organization of this text is not matched by any other that I have seen. . . . Only Fessenden proceeds logically from sigma-bond chemistry to non-polar pi-bond chemistry to aromatic pi-bond chemistry and then to polar pe-bond chemistry. This organization is the result of an insight few, if any, authors have had."
