4.0 out of 5 stars A-level (or similar) guide to Chemistry
This is a great book. I teach IB Chemistry in an international school in Thailand and my students have had their fill of books which all follow a bog-standard, well-researched, but ultimately rather bland format.
This book is great in that it gives a lighter format which presents sound facts in a light-hearted way so that students are likely to read a section and not...

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless
I bought this book because I needed refresher course on chemistry and thought this would be good.

Unfortunately, if you already know chemistry, this book will teach you nothing. Also, unfortunately, if you don't know chemistry then this book will teach you nothing. The existence of this book seem superfluous.

Yes, there are some mildly amusing...

This is a great book. I teach IB Chemistry in an international school in Thailand and my students have had their fill of books which all follow a bog-standard, well-researched, but ultimately rather bland format.
This book is great in that it gives a lighter format which presents sound facts in a light-hearted way so that students are likely to read a section and not realise that they have learned too much.
It is not, however, a replacement to a text-book - more an addition to a student's library or reading resources. I'm recommmending our school library get a copy or two of this so students can, with their finals around the corner, use it to consolidate information.
It's a good buy and there are other in the series covering statistics, physics and genetics.
A great buy and a bargain price!

This was bought as a fun present for my daughter who has a chemistry degree and she loved it it but also good for younger children to introduce them to chemistry.

Yes, there are some mildly amusing cartoons and there are some very terse textbook summaries on chemistry, all printed on very low-grade paper.

I am an engineer by training and I didn't understand a word even of the section on logarithms. That's how bad this book is.
