SUCCEED IN CHEMISTRY WITH ORGANIC CHEMISTRY HYBRID EIGHTH EDITION WITH OWL, which includes access to OWL Online Web Learning and its built-in interactive eBook. In John McMurry's words, "I wrote this book because I love writing. I get great pleasure and satisfaction from taking a complicated subject, turning it around until I see it clearly from a new angle, and then explaining it in simple words." Through his lucid writing and ability to show the beauty and logic of organic chemistry, McMurry makes learning enjoyable. The book's built-in access to the OWL online learning system helps you maximize your study time and improve your success in the course, while the interactive, customizable Cengage YouBook enhances your understanding through videos and animations and gives you the ability to highlight, add notes, and more.

Table of Contents
"I believe the text's main strength is its strong connection to biology, biochemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry and that this is a direction I would like to move our course. Also, establishing relevance to the world of student's is crucial and this text does a very good job in this area."Stephen Godleski, The College at Brockport, SUNY "McMurry is very clearly organized. Students find it readable, which is a remarkable accomplishment. The McMurry text has excellent problems and connects well to students interested in the biochemical and medicinal applications of organic chemistry. Although different from most other texts on the market, the introduction of alkene and alkyne reactions prior to substitution/elimination reactions is easily manageable, and in fact simpler, thus providing a smooth entry into organic reactions for new students. McMurry has excellent spectra and makes good use of color. The electrostatic potential maps are helpful at times."Ernest G. Nolen, Colgate University
