I relearned all I had forgotten from high school chemistry. Basically everything. Very amusing illustrations as well.
Dec 25, Anthony Faber rated it liked it. I found this a bit harder to follow than the other ones, but that may be because I actually took enough chemistry that I couldn't just shrug off the technical parts, but have forgotten enough over the 40 years since I took it that it was a struggle to recall stuff.

I wanted to review alot of the chemistry, that I had forgotten from Gen. This was very helpful in doing so the illustrations and quirky humor really helped to enforce some points in the book. I had also learned alot about fun facts in chemistry through this book. Although every time it would break out formulas or other arithmetic, the explanations were general and I had to look up other sources to understand. Jun 07, Nick Khormaei rated it really liked it. Another thing I liked was that the information corresponded with our class pretty well, as it started with the mole stuff and ended with K and equilibrium.

But all in all, I enjoyed it a lot, and it was a great book. Nov 18, Nadinastiti rated it really liked it Shelves: owned. Had this book since university years but never had any chance and interest to actually read it, haha. It makes clear that the graphology result which say I am more to Mathematical and Physics than Chemistry and Biology composite is totally true.
Nevertheless, I wish I had read this before I took that Basic Chemistry class in my freshman year, because the book contains the basic concept of ALL the lessons from the atoms, periodic table, and organic chemistry.

Mar 07, Christina rated it liked it Shelves: science , graphic-novels , non-fiction. Kinda skimmed over most of the second half since I'm not teaching much of the math of chemistry to the kids at this time. But I got some good metaphors and feel generally refreshed in my knowledge of the subject, so yay! Apr 09, Joseph rated it really liked it. There were a lot of basic facts, from the discovery of fire to the explanation of the periodic table. The cartoon made it more funny and interesting and got me in the book.
Jun 16, meme rated it liked it Shelves: science-teaching-strategies. These type of books provides a unique approach to a subject usually considered accessible only to eggheads. It is crammed with clear, concise, amusing illustrations. Definitions are reduced to clear, simple sentences, but the book has plenty of equations, which do require some thought.
As palatable as the author makes the subject, it is still chemistry. I like that the book has brief descriptions of theories, provides perspective and an idea of how major theories developed and built over the cen These type of books provides a unique approach to a subject usually considered accessible only to eggheads. I like that the book has brief descriptions of theories, provides perspective and an idea of how major theories developed and built over the centuries. A good spare time book or supplemental read.
