"[A]ll of the chapter openers are good and it's a great concept. It's really appealing that each opener is very different and might appeal to different student interests?interests outside of chemistry. The objectives were consistent with the text and will prove to be very helpful for students. [I] love the group activities with the ethics focus! I would use these with my students. I would seriously consider this text and recommend it to my colleagues." - Allison Dobson, Georgia Southern University.
