Elements of Physical Chemistry has been carefully developed to help . Peter Atkins is a fellow of Lincoln College in the University of Oxford and the author of about seventy books for students and a general audience. His texts are market leaders around the globe.

Elements of Physical Chemistry has been carefully developed to help readers increase their confidence when using physics and mathematics to answer fundamental questions about the structure of molecules, how chemical reactions take place, and why materials behave the way they do. The content is tightly focussed and well-matched to undergraduate courses, making it easy to find the information needed.

Part 1 now carries the title Thermodynamics.

We hope that both categories of user will perceive and enjoy the renewed vitality of the text and the presentation of this demanding but engaging subject. The text is still divided into three parts, but each chapter is now presented as a series of short and more readily mastered Topics. Part 1 now carries the title Thermodynamics.

A brief version of the best-selling physical chemistry book. Its ideal for the one-semesterphysical chemistrycourse, providing an introduction to the essentials ofthe subjectwithout too much math.

Like all the books that Atkins has written entirely on his own, the "Elements of Physical Chemistry" is a work of extremely high quality. With this, I mean that Atkins has succeeded entirely in achieving what he aimed for - writing a condensed booklet that collects in one place all the physical chemistry there is in General Chemistry, with very slight additional depth. The layout does not interfere, organization of material is perfect; but then, most General Chemistry texts would of course be very much easier to read and understand if all the flow-charts, dialogue boxes, summary boxes, review boxes, review question boxes, exercise boxes, problem boxes, concept question boxes, application boxes, margin notes and hundreds of flashy pictures were removed. As a child, a man that one day would become my professor, on one occasion said to me "you simply must know every WORD of this book, for it contains the elementa of the discipline". I followed this and other advice of his, and today I enjoy the effects of his wisdom. WelI-meaningly I now say to all people taking General Chemistry - get this book and learn every WORD. I urge you. With concentration, you will have learned everything well in one week-end. (You will be the best in your class with only this minimal investment of effort, if that is perhaps your concern.) The [elementa]of Physical Chemistry is really an inadequate title, as the foundations of Physical Chemistry come from many disciplines that must be studied separately; some catch-all volume is impossible. The "Postulates of General Chemistry" would be more descriptive, but extremely unlikely... Thus, do not be grightened by the title - this is GENERAL chemistry at its best. If you know what a definite integral is, you will be perfectly alright. The only weakness is the binding (as with the last edition of the Physical Chemistry proper and its accessory manuals) but that is no different from other books. Soon, the greed of publishing houses will have wiped out the last memory of that book binding really is an art. (Those who dream of obtaining a conscientous understanding of chemistry and physics, I also urge to read this book - since it will, as said, require only three days of work and will definitely save you many, many hours of inefficiency that a loose understanding of General Chemistry would steal from your restless struggle in your first Physical Chemistry or any other post-G-chem. course! Besides, conscience is always in constant movement and no one book, or even a thousand, good or bad, can anchor it securely for you! I take this opportunity of warning against trusting oneself too securely in the gentle arms of pedagogy: you should naturally listen to your masters carefully, admire their skill and persistence and remember all their words, but the only truth is that which you wholeheartedly believe in yourself. Now, as you try this out, you might find that believing is an infinitely beautiful and human thing, but one surprisingly hard to do (that is probably why so many have left church) - and then there is hope for you! The desire to come to rest, in belief, will force you to derive every relation that you come across and think about how all hangs together, day and night, in sickness and in health, in your sleep and while you have supper - until your conscience says "enough!...for now." This fascinating process will let you taste the "real" science, follow its gradual discovery, and build the tremendous skill that you will need carrying it forth. Last, but surely not least, you will be given a chance of discovering yourself in a way that no Navy drill ever could succeed with. MUCH ENJOYMENT I WISH TO YOU!)

Another instructor's viewpoint:

This text is not worth utilizing. It has many errors -- in the text, in the sample problems, in the book-end answers, and in the accompanying student solution's guide.

A note regarding the recently-released 4th edition: It's no better! I recieved an evaluation copy and found many of the same errors propagated into the new edition. And the "online" student solution guide does not exist (as of Dec 15, 2005). I'm sure it made teaching the course especially difficult for those who used the new edition this past Fall.

Atkins is a great author for the 2-semester calculus-based course, but everyone involved with the production of this text should consider what they're doing with greater scrutiny.
