Chemistry and Life has been written in that spirit Nuclear chemistry is now Chapter 12, following the general chemistry part of the text and just before the organic chapters.

Chemistry and Life has been written in that spirit. We help explain apparently obscure phenomena in an informal, readable style. We assume that the student has little or no chemistry background, so we clearly explain each new concept as it is introduced. Chemical principles and biological applications are carefully integrated throughout the text, with liberal use of drawings, diagrams, and photographs. Nuclear chemistry is now Chapter 12, following the general chemistry part of the text and just before the organic chapters. The chapters dealing with metabolism (24-27) have been extensively reorganized and rewritten and include a more complete discussion of anabolic pathways.

Chemistry and Life book. We believe that aknowledge of chemistry can help you. We have written this book in the firm belief that from the beginning, chemistry is related to problems and opportunities in the life and health sciences. And we believe that this can make the study of chemistry interesting and exciting, especially to nonchemists. For example, an "ion" is more than a chemical abstraction. Enough mercury ions in the wrong place can kill you, but the right number of calcium ions in the right place can keep you from bleeding to death.

I'm a computer guy working at a biotech and wanted to know more about what the guys in the coats are doing. This book is a very good introduction for those with a science bent.
I especially enjoyed reading about the Bohr model of the atom (which is what I learned in school) only to have it totally dissed after 3/4ths of a page as inadequate!
I don't know how well it works as a class room text (this is night-time reading for me) but for a enjoyable well written text on Biochemistry this is an excellent choice.

I needed this book for my Chemistry class and it was such a good, easy read. The material was understandable and I didnt have to re-read the same paragraph​ a million times to understand. Im happy my professor choose this text book!

I bought online because it was $150 dollars cheaper than at my school and it was new book. Definitely recommend it you're looking to save money for a new book.

The illustration on electron energy levels needs to be more clear. There needs to be improvement on how the periodic table's properties are explained. The text needs better, simpler and more clear graphs and illustrations. There are much better Chemistry texts out there than this one.

Great book, takes you from 0 and teaches in a nice and easy to understand way fundamentals of chemistry up to organic

I'm very pleased with my purchase. I needed the book for school and I received it within a week.

chapters are out of order is hard to find chapters because pages are in wrong order
I took this book out of my local library as I wanted to learn about organic chemistry in a general sense, before I get down and dirty with it during class.

This book starts off with the more simple aspects of chemistry that schools teach in general chemistry. I skipped these portions since I had already learned most of them , and so can't comment on them specifically.

Instead I went to the organic chemistry sections, which seem to make up the bulk the book's center. These sections are helpful at grasping the ideas behind organic chemistry, but they never go into a lot of detail about any particular portion. For example, there is a chapter on Carboxylic acids which explains what categorizes that functional group, as well as a couple physical properties surrounding it; Such as how it'll make a salt with bases, boiling point trends. To me it felt like reading a Wikipedia entry, but one that is portable and tries to leave heavy mathematics out, and is oriented towards a more general audience. This is good, but there was a craving for more, as though things that may be important are being kept from me.

Pictures/diagrams were generally well illustrated, I would have liked in a couple places for the authors to have placed the diagrams they were referring to on the same page for fast reference, rather than move it to the next one, but I can understand how this isn't always possible. Like the pictures there was the tendency to refer to something once, then use it a lot after that, so be prepared to backtrack. Luckily there was a helpful sheet at the back that had common functional groups discussed in the organic portion of the book.

There are practice problems at the end of each chapter. As a general reader, you probably wouldn't have to go over them, as they were probably intended for classroom homework. They appeared to be based off of the practice exercises that are scattered through each chapter after they went over it. These practice exercises were well done, as the authors would go over a problem that you would see in the end of chapter questions and then work out the solution for you. Helpful to solidify the topics.

Special selected topics are also contained within the pages. These sections felt as though the author wanted less explaining and more lecturing. Not that this is bad, as the pace was certainly faster, but in that same way, it introduced a lot of vocabulary, and new substances, which are unlikely to be heavily applied outside that selected topic. These Selected Topics were interesting in that they were written about life processes so felt like they mattered. One was written about drugs that people use, and short facts about them. Another one highlighted neurons and chemical signals, which quickly became convoluted.

Overall, reading it was fun, and educational without too much investment of brainpower. Brings up interesting thoughts about the world around us.
