This book is designed to be used in a general university chemistry course which must provide both an overview of chemistry for nonspecialists and a sound foundation for later study for science or chemistry majors. Hence there are several survey chapters introducing different areas of chemistry, including inorganic, nuclear, organic, and biochemistry, and an attempt is made throughout the book to place chemistry in its historical and cultural setting. At the same time, the quantitative aspects of chemistry are presented in a manner consistent with their importance, in a way that will make it easy to build upon them in later courses.

This text explanes the structure of molecules using quantum mechanical ideas, stressing qualitative and semi-quantitative considerations with the emphasis on developing principles that can be used to make reliable predictions on new systems.

Success in studying Chemistry depends upon the familiarity of students with a few basic ideas, conventions, and methods upon which later studies are built. This small book presents these basic ideas, conventions and methods in chemistry.
by Bruce Averill, Patricia Eldredge - Saylor Foundation
The authors emphasize the positive aspects of chemistry and its relationship to students' lives, which requires bringing in applications. They use an integrated approach that includes explicit discussions of biological and environmental applications.
