Review: Organic Chemistry

User Review  - Flora - Goodreads

The text was very readable and engaging, not at all flat and boring like most textbooks that I've read. The graphics are also incredibly helpful in envisioning the mechanisms and activity at the molecular level. I would definitely highly recommend this text for studying Organic Chemistry.
