Covers All Aspect of Physical Chemistry !!!!!!!!

User Review  - Om Krishna Upa... - Flipkart

I have bought this book from Flip kart . Book is excellently packed by Seller WS Retail . If You are an IIT-JEE aspirants .Read this book and do question in the exercise . I assured No one can stop you in physical chemistry . The theory of any chaPter is aWesome . Read full review

Atkin’s Physical Chemistry (Paperback)

User Review  - Arnab Mukherjee - Flipkart

Getting the book at such a price (Rs ~480) is unbelievable. Book is anyway highly recommended. Also getting the other book “Quanta, matter, and change in paperback will be really helpful. Read full review

About the author (2002)

Peter Atkins is Professor of Chemistry and Fellow of Lincoln College at Oxford University. He is the author of several world-famous chemistry textbooks. One reason why these continue to be leaders throughout the world after more than two decades is his remarkable gift for being able to explain
things--especially challenging concepts--memorably and with great clarity. This gift has regularly been deployed in his books for the general reader (Richard Dawkins has described one of them, The Creation, as 'the most beautifully written popular science book ever'), but never to better effect than
now, in Galileo's Finger.
