From the Back Cover
A classic textbook on mechanistic organic chemistry which is characterised particularly by its clarity, careful choice of examples and its general approach that is designed to lead to a ready understanding of the subject matter. This guidebook is aimed clearly at the needs of the student, with a thorough understanding of, and provision for, the potential conceptual difficulties he or she is likely to encounter.

Sykes' book is a classic in the organic chemisty world and is a sound investement for the chemistry undergraduate. It's not an encyclopedia of all organic reactions, but it will do for all the basics, mechanisms, solid discussion, and will come in handy for learning all that physical organic chemistry you're bound to encounter.
It's also quite small and convenient to pick up, unlike those bulky American textbooks! In fact I think it's an American legal requirement for their textbooks to weigh more than a standard issue anvil. Probably why they all need SUVs with 18L engines.
Anyway, if you're going to do a chemistry degree in the UK, get Sykes' book and Clayden, Greeves, Warren & Wothers' "Organic Chemistry" (consider getting the problems and answers book for that too, if you can afford it all).
Every chemist should own this.
