Delightful -- this is a book I always wanted to write but never found time to write, PLUS THIS book by Gene Davis is a lot better than I could have written! I recommend it for any who are interested in casual study of organic chemistry or who formerly were once adept at organic chemistry but became rusty and are looking for a refresher review. I like this book WAY better than any other less-than-full-blown university Organic Chemistry books I have yet examined (and over the years I have examined a bunch of "made easy" and "for idiots" books on organic chemistry).
It was a very helpful book to help me break down some of the complex subjects of chemistry.
"Organic Chemistry made ridiculously simple" is a great supplementary text. Its emphasis on first principles helps to establish a solid starting point for any organic chemistry student. It is direct and easy to understand with great diagrams, many examples, and occasional humor that help to introduce and emphasize various basic organic concepts. This emphasis on basic and core concepts helps to set up an intuitive foundation for branching out to other more complex subject areas. I would recommend this book in addition to the standard course text for any student and perhaps especially for a student who may be struggling a bit with this subject.
