Summary
Written with a personal, humorous touch by today's chemistry luminaries, Letters to a Young Chemist offers hypothetical missives from a professor to a chemistry undergrad considering a career in several subdisciplines. These include organic, inorganic, experimental physical, analytical, and theoretical chemistry, as well as chemical biology materials chemistry, and green chemistry. The authors discuss major achievements, future prospects, and the challenges and satisfactions of a career in each. These entertaining and informative pieces will appeal to a wide range of chemistry students, instru
