Succeed in the course with this easy-to-understand text. The book introduces the basics of coordination, solid state, and descriptive main-group chemistry in a uniquely accessible manner, featuring a "less is more" approach. Rather than reviewing material already covered in your introductory course, the book moves directly into topics central to inorganic chemistry. Written in a conversational style that is enjoyable and easy to understand, this book presents not only the basic theories and methods of inorganic chemistry (in three self-standing sections), but also a great deal of the history and applications of the discipline. To better help you understand how seemingly disparate topics connect, full color coverage of the "Network of Interconnected Ideas for Understanding the Periodic Table" appears on the endpapers. In addition, the book includes a new pull-out card of the complete network for easy reference.
