Black and Ron Kohser have continued this book′s long and distinguished tradition of exceedingly clear presentation and highly practical approach to materials and processes, presenting mathematical models and analytical equations only when they enhance the basic understanding of the material. Updated to reflect all current practices, standards, and materials, this edition has new coverage of additive manufacturing, lean engineering, and processes related to ceramics, polymers, and plastics.
Master organic chemistry with the help of this proven best-seller! John McMurry’s ORGANIC CHEMISTRY is consistently praised as the most clearly written book available for the course.

I get great pleasure and satisfaction from taking a complicated subject, turning it around until I see it clearly from a new angle, and then explaining it in simple words.” Through his lucid writing and ability to show the beauty and logic of organic chemistry, McMurry makes learning enjoyable. The highest compliment that can be given to a chemistry book applies to McMurry: It works!

In this innovative and thought-provoking book, the author takes an original look at some of the new ways of understanding how organizations work including complexity, chaos theory and quantum structures.
In a readable and accessible style, Walter Baet’s argues that we need a new way of looking at the world and at human systems, in organizations and in society as a whole. He proposes a holistic management approach which is in direct opposition to the short-term shareholder value driven approach which dominates much management practice. The aim is to encourage the emergence of a new type of learning within organizations. To illustrate this, he discusses self-organizing systems, the complexity paradigm, the nature and use of knowledge; management learning at both the organizational and individual level and personal development. Finally, he argues in favor of considering business and economics as a network of agents that operate based on synchronicity – the quantum structure of business.
Encouragingthe reader to reflect on their own experiences, and drawing on examples from a number of real-life company cases, Walter Baets delivers a readable and thought-provoking book. For students and managers interested in complexity, knowledge management, innovation and organizational learning, it will be an invaluable guide to new ways of looking at organizations, learning and innovation.
