"...There is no doubt that every chemistry library should have a copy of the comprehensive reference work..." -- Applied Organometallic Chemistry Vol 14 2000
From the Inside Flap
For more than a quarter century, Cotton and Wilkinson′s Advanced Inorganic Chemistry has been the source that students and professional chemists have turned to for the background needed to understand current research literature in inorganic chemistry and aspects of organometallic chemistry. Like its predecessors, this updated Sixth Edition is organized around the periodic table of elements and provides a systematic treatment of the chemistry of all chemical elements and their compounds. It incorporates important recent developments with an emphasis on advances in the interpretation of structure, bonding, and reactivity.See all Product Description

This is an 'Advanced ' inorganic chemistry book. To me, it is of the most value to final year and post-graduate students and students studying at a lower level should consider purchasing another book.
I found it gave a nice introduction into a vast amount of research which is going on today in the field of inorganic chemistry. It also mixes togeter the areas of coordination, organometallic and materials chemistry as well as what could be called pure inorganic chemistry.
I recommend it to all post graduate chemists who wish to develop a more holistic view of their subject rather than finding themselves confined to their own narrow topic. There are full references provided. Even though it is a huge book, it only gives a relatively small amount of detail, so the references are essential. Also, the majority of references are for quite recent publications. While some people say that this book has been butchered since the last edition, I have to disagree, it's a much more exiting read now.

I advise the fifth edition, which is much better, even if it's quite old: the updates of new edition don't offset its flaws.
This text provides clear and balanced coverage, as it applies to Inorganic Chemistry. Every branch of the course was browsed, and with generous details too. In addition to the general principles and laws, there are updated information on: Atomic Structures of elements, Chemical Bondings and related associations; as well as Chemical Equilibria and Enthalpy.
Together with its insight in Nuclear Chemistry, the details this book provided on inorganic elements and compounds is worthy of praise. It is a fine textbook, which anyone who has the basic knowledge of elementary chemistry should be glad to read.
