Dewick, however, provides adequate detail in a concise and easy-to-read format. This includes explained examples, useful diagrams and tables, with all key words highlighted in the text. The chapter order is logical with cross-referencing so ideas can easily be linked for a more complete understanding of the subject. The whole book is also surprisingly lightweight.
This may not be an exhaustive guide to organic chemistry, but I have found it extremely helpful. An essential textbook for any pharmacy student!
