According to the author; the aim of the fourth edition remains exactly the same as that for the first edition of the book. That is to provide a modern textbook of inorganic chemistry that is long enough to cover essentials, yet short enough to be interesting. It provides a simple and logical framework into which the reader should be able to fit factual knowledge and extrapolate from this to predict unknown facts. This book is intended to fill the gap between school books and final year honours degree chemistry texts. The need for an appropriate and sympathetically written text has increased significantly now that the first cohorts of GCSE students are applying to read chemistry at degree and diploma level. It is aimed primarily at first or second-year degree students in chemistry, but will also be useful for those doing chemistry as ancillary subjects at chemistry and also for BTEC courses. Above all it is intended to be easy to read and understand.
