About the Author

Peter Atkins is the author of about 70 books, including the world-renowned and widely used Physical Chemistry, now in its 10th edition. He won the Grady-Stack award for science journalism in 2016. After graduating from the University of Leicester and a post-doctoral year in the University of California, Los Angeles, he returned to Oxford in 1965 as Fellow of Lincoln College and University Lecturer (later Professor) in physical chemistry. He retired in 2007, but continues to write and lecture worldwide.

Reviews

Atkins wins his readers' attention simply through an elegant and lucid description of the subject he loves. * Nature *
[T]he result is pretty much unimprovable. Recommending that every chemistry student in the world read a book by Peter Atkins feels a bit like recommending that everyone buy their books from Amazon. But what can you do? If this book had existed when I was an undergraduate, I'd have benefited tremendously. Now you can. * Philip Ball, Nature Chemistry *
This is an excellent presentation, especially for laypeople and high school students or for a 'chemistry for poets' course. Highly recommended. * R. E. Buntrock, Choice, *
It is an important supplementary book for undergraduate students in Chemistry, [and] integrates the main Chemistry concepts in an easy and fast reading. * Montserrat Gomez, University of Toulouse *
