Advanced school students and beginning undergraduates will find this book a readable and stimulating summary of the fundamentals of organic chemistry. The first three chapters introduce some basic physical chemistry, and lay the groundwork for the mechanistic organic chemistry covered later in the book. The importance of bonding and mechanism are stressed throughout, and students are encouraged to apply their chemical knowledge in new and unfamiliar situations in order to develop and sustain their interest. A wide range of examples including natural products and pharmaceuticals is included, with the final chapter exploring some new developments and providing an introduction to current research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book, one of the Oxford Chemistry Primers, consolidates what should have been learnt at school and prepares the student for a university level course.' Peter Budd, New Scientist, September 1993
'the treatment is clear and concise and includes some useful analogies ... Considering the very reasonable price and clear presentation, I have no hesitation in recommending this book as a study guide and revision aid for students attending school and FE colleges.' David Armstead, Education in Chemistry, November 1993
'deals with quite advanced concepts in a confident and well-presented way, so that it covers a lot of ground in a small volume ... The text is well laid out, with wide page margins which contain comments and relevant exercises, and the book is attractive and easy to read. This is quite simply the best book for this stage that I have ever seen.' Bob Watson, School Science Review
'well written with a design format twhich is easy to follow ... The numerous diagrams used throughout ... are clear, concise and informative. A good reading material for first year organic chemistry students and good value for money.' N. Peerzada, Chemistry in Australia, March 1994
