    This falls somewhere between high school and college chemistry. Definitely need to know and understand basic chemistry to grasp the concepts that are briefly highlighted, but not quite deep enough to be able to fill in what you would learn in a college level course. It is amazing to read of the pioneers and the years in which discoveries were made. Practical applications of complex subjects helps the reader to see the benefits provided by specific areas of chemistry.

Practical applications of complex subjects helps the reader to see the benefits provided by specific areas of chemistry. I'd say this book would be useful for writers who need to understand or explain a concept they are writing about without getting too heavily detailed. It can also be a good refresher for those who have taken chemistry and would simply like to brush up their knowledge. This could also be used to spark the interest of a high school age student looking to challenge themselves and discover the broader world of science and chemistry. * I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads giveaways *

    A nice introduction book on huge amount of areas that make up the field of chemistry. Its nicely written, easy to understand, gives a good "vocabulary" to know and learn throughout this book as well as a great overview on important people in the field and a more in-depth summary of their lives. If you want to get a better understanding of chemistry, or if you are someone that always struggled with the topic in school and want to finally be able to understand the basics?

Tro, is a nifty little book made up of bite-sized and easy-to-understand concepts of chemistry. As a chemistry graduate student, it wasn’t exactly new information, but I can appreciate its simplicity in making chemistry accessible to everyone, especially to those that never took another chemistry course beyond high school. Each page contained a different topic, with a quick, one-sentence summary in the margin. This book basically covers everything, from the basics of atoms and bonding to the states of matter to chemical reactions, to broad overviews of major areas of study, namely inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Although the cover isn’t necessarily entirely eye-catching (green and white on a background of gray), the pictures inside are. They are colorful, fun, and serve to reinforce the theme on the mirroring page. All-in-all, if you want to learn a little something about chemistry, I think this book is interesting and you should give it a go. I don’t know how it compares to other similar books on the market, but I liked its short and concise topics mixed with fun and colorful pictures. Now go. Impress your friends. Win a trivia game. And learn a little more about chemistry, because chemistry is awesome! Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group – Wellfleet Press for a copy of this eBook in exchange for an honest review!

    **I received this book as part of Goodreads' FirstReads giveaway.** I found this book to an excellent primer/indtroduction to chemistry and the various subdisciplines. Each page provides a brief overview of a specific topic (i.e. atoms, types of bonds, etc.) with the opposite page being an illustration of the corresponding topic.

The book covered a wide range of topics on chemistry, including radioactivity, nuclear medicine, and organic molecules, but it did so in way that made the topics easy to comprehend. I also enjoyed the brief biographies of prominent chemists throughout the book, which provided a nice background on discoveries and progress in the field. My only criticism was that the illustrations were abstract and "artsy" at times when a diagram or model of the topic would have been more beneficial to the reader. Overall, I really enjoyed the book. This is certainly not a substitute for a textbook, but it does provide basic information about general chemistry as well as biochemistry, organic, inorganic, and nuclear chemistry. This would be an excellent book for middle and high schoolers to learn more about chemistry or for anyone needing a quick refresher.

    An excellent summary of chemistry concepts - for review, or to get an overview if you've always wondered what chemistry is about. The guide includes lots of quick facts, such as "3-second" summaries of critical information, vocabulary definitions at the beginning of each section, and single page summaries of chemistry concepts with illustrations.

    As I'm an ignorant person, I liked this book a lot because starting from the bases it gave me the most important concepts in a very clear way. I would love to read a book from this series on many others topics. Siccome sono una persona ignorante, questo libro mi è piaciuto molto, perché partendo dalle basi mi ha dato tutte le nozioni piú importanti in modo molto chiaro. Sono molti altri gli argomenti sui quali vorrei leggere un libro del genere. THANKS TO NETGALLEY FOR THE PREVIEW!

    The Know It All books offer a fast-paced look into various topics with lots of fun images thrown in. They cover a lot of topics with a good overview amount of data. Each topic is easily digestible on one page so it's great to flip to a random page and read (or read in order like I did). The books introduce new vocabulary that you would need in order to understand the next few topics. This was easily my lease favorite from the line that I read.

The books introduce new vocabulary that you would need in order to understand the next few topics. This was easily my lease favorite from the line that I read. I found that I knew most of what was covered in the book - which didn't feel right to me since I only had one year of Chem in high school and 1 semester of chem in college. I think this book would be much better suited for middle school or high school learners.

    Nifty little book for quick reads on chemistry that don't go too deep and get too confusing for people, like myself, who aren't science smart. Lol. Don't know that this is a must read, but it's interesting enough to dive into. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
