Summary
Written by two professional chemists and educators, this text introduces lay readers to the principles of chemistry. Hands-on demonstrations (such as a bottle rocket assembled from common household objects) and quotations from popular literature show how chemistry and everyday life intertwine. Coverage includes the basics of atomic structure, the nature of molecular bonds, and the mechanics of chemical reactions. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
