It is not a pared down version of a general chemistry text, but carefully crafted with the introductory‐chemistry student in mind.The ordering of topics facilitates the conceptual development of chemistry for the novice, rather than the historical development that has been used traditionally. Its language and style are student‐friendly and conversational and the importance and wonder of chemistry in everyday life are emphasised at every opportunity.

The first step in this development is for each reader to increase his or her own self-awareness. This first step is built into each chapter’s content.

The text not only delivers the tools and processes essential to successful project management, but also an understanding that the effectiveness of these tools and methods are shaped and determined by the prevailing culture of the organization and interpersonal dynamics of the people involved. As such, Larson/Gray presents a holistic view that focuses on methodology as well as the human dimension and how they interact to determine the outcome of projects.
