"This book presents chemistry as it is today. Great emphasis is placed on experimentation and observation as the basis for all knowledge of chemistry, or indeed, of any other physical science. The unifying principles of the subject are developed in a logical way, with laboratory work providing a basis for this development. ...science is simply not a collection of facts. The true goal of science is the understanding and interpretation of those facts in a consistent way, that is, a grasp of the principles upon which the facts ultimately rest. In this book, you will be engaged in a scientific activity...You will be encouraged to consider how we may deal with these problems and use a knowledge of chemistry to avoid creating further environmental problems."
