With the goal of helping students develop a good intuition for organic chemistry, it approaches the material from a mechanistic viewpoint. Presents twenty electron flow pathways as the building blocks of all the common mechanistic processes. Thus, students deal with a smaller number of reactant classes instead of studying each reaction as a separate case. Uses physical models such as energy surfaces to aid the decision-making process; includes a unique chapter that teaches students how to make a multivariable decision; and contains advanced explanations using interaction diagrams and molecular orbital theory.

The author was my Organic Chemistry teacher at New College in Florida. A brilliant man, if a bit odd, this book helped me learn and pass his class. Read full review
