I figured that THE killer app for Kindles would be textbooks--easy to carry, easy to handle, and you only need one, instead of dragging around an pack full of lb books that are difficult to read anywhere but a desk. So I was dismayed to find that this book's formatting for the Kindle made parts of it unreadable.
The summaries at the start of each chapter--which not only had I expected to offer a valuable context for what came next, but are presumably the "Instant Notes" touted on the cover--seem to have been set as figures rather than text. This means that instead of them being in a readable and adjustable font size, each entire summary is shrunk to fit on a single Kindle screen, meaning--no exaggeration--it's in roughly 3-point type about a millimeter high, or four hundredths of an inch.
These summaries are a feature that I paid for, and should be getting in an accessible manner. Needless to say, I'm rather miffed. Nearly as annoying are the "widows"--the last line of a several-line paragraph at the top of a screen.
This includes equations cut in half. Obviously, this isn't the fault of the book or its authors so much as it is Amazon's. Kindle is Amazon's baby, and they could be terrific for some things--if Amazon would just unwallet and hire a few people to proofread these marketed-to-death products before unleashing them on the public.
As for the book itself, content is okay what I can read of it for a p-chem study aid, although I agree with the fellow who pointed out that mastering physical chemistry really requires working problems, of which this book has none. So you really should find an additional source for problem sets e. For students doing first or second year chemistry, they may often find themselves overwhelmed by tonnes of equations from different aspects of physical chemistry. Understanding a concept and memorizing equations for closed book exam is two different things.
To make life easier, especially for examination preparation, it's good to make a brief note from text or leture notes. However, it's very time consuming. Why not look for a shortcut and get focus on essential stuffs? This title covers many of the core subjects in undergraduate chemistry course.

This title covers many of the core subjects in undergraduate chemistry course. As a chemical engineering student, I also found it very handy when I came across some fundamental concepts later in my course, for example like thermodynamics and electrochemistry. It presents abstract ideas into simplicity, essential concepts and equations are well defined. For students who want to learn ahead, this book also helps to understand the scope of each topic. If you want to build up a good foundation of physical chemistry, beside the prescribed texts, there is no substitute.
This is a good book to help augment your studies in this field. However, be warned, there are no problem sets in this series so if you're looking for Physical Chem problems to work; this is not the place to go. If you want some series that explains the concepts in a relatively clear way and probably in a different manner from your standard textbook, then buy it!
NEVER substitute this for working problems I agree with Gary's review completely. This is the only physical chemistry book I could find that seemed like it was written for people who need help on the subject. I cannot say the same for Schaum's outline for physical chemistry.
