I love all of Larry Gonick's "Cartoon Guides..." My kids read his books over and over and the information really sticks in their brains. Often I have heard one of them say that they only remembered an answer on a test because of what they read in one of the "Cartoon Guides." I wish that these books were a part of the curriculum in their school system.

"Synopsis" by , If you have ever suspected that "heavy water" is the title of a bootleg Pink Floyd album, believed that surface tension is an anxiety disorder, or imagined that a noble gas is the result of a heavy meal at Buckingham Palace, then you need The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry to set you on the road to chemical literacy.

You don't need to be a scientist to grasp these and many other complex ideas, because The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry explains them all: the history and basics of chemistry, atomic theory, combustion, solubility, reaction stoichiometry, the mole, entropy, and much more—all explained in simple, clear, and yes, funny illustrations. Chemistry will never be the same!

"Synopsis" by , In engaging and humorous graphic style, this collaboration between a scientist and a cartoonist covers both the history and the basics, including early ideas and techniques, electrochemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, physics as chemistry, and much more.
