The Organic Chemistry of Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions is not a book on enzymes, but rather a book on the general mechanisms involved in chemical reactions involving enzymes. An enzyme is a protein molecule in a plant or animal that causes specific reactions without itself being permanently altered or destroyed.
This is a revised edition of a very successful book, which appeals to both academic and industrial markets.

Praise for the First Edition:
"Silverman's newest contribution will serve as an outstanding text and reference on the reaction mechanisms of enzymes. ... His treatment of the topic should also appeal to a broad range of organic, medicinal, and biological chemists who desire an up-to-date and succinct overview of the field. Silverman should be congratulated ... should quickly become the standard for mechanistic studies." --JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY
