KEY BENEFIT: This is the first mainstream general chemistry book to be written with an atoms-first approach, offering the same lucid character and conceptual emphasis that readers have come to expect from these authors. The atoms-first organization progresses from the simplest building blocks to successively more complex concepts, enabling the authors to tell a cohesive story about chemistry that follows an intuitive logic. This unified thread of ideas helps readers build a better foundation and ultimately gain a deeper understanding of chemical concepts. Readers can more easily understand the micro-to-macro connections between unobservable atoms and the observable behavior of matter in daily life, and are brought immediately into real chemistry-instead of being forced to first spend time with arithmetic.
