This book could be used as the basis for a good course in beginning organic chemistry. It is logically arranged, well written and down to date. The chapter on carbohydrates is particularly good. That on the alkaloids is too brief. The quiz questions and problems at the ends of the chapters are well thought out. Interesting footnotes give short sketches of some of the famous early organic chemists.
