**Book Reviews:** Why this book? The author realizes that he probably only has a few seconds to answer this question before you decide whether to read any further, so here are two points which summarizes the philosophy behind it.

The first is that wherever possible the mathematics is presented through the use of actual chemical examples. The author firmly believes that this is much more valuable than using abstract problems. The end of chapter questions all contain traditional problems using x and y, but then go on to explore chemistry using the wealth of symbols to be found in physical chemistry textbooks.

Second, at the end of the book you will find outline solutions to all the problems, rather than just the final answers. Again, the author believes this is vital for making this a book that can be used by students, whether or not an instructor is present.

The author has aimed this book at the student with GCSE mathematics who has embarked upon a degree in chemistry. The mathematics required, particularly in physical chemistry, may seem daunting. My intention is to provide a reference that can be used for assistance at any point during the chemistry degree, but particularly in the first year.

In places, the author has gone for a clear workable approach, rather than being mathematically rigorous. The author hopes that any mathematicians who happen to read this book will forgive him for this.
