Editorial Reviews

Review

Exceptionally thorough and well written, Principles of Molecular Photochemistry will be useful to every active researcher in the field. Filled with reference material for experts, the book also gives an excellent introduction to photochemical reactivity for students. - --Malcolm Forbes, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Format: Paperback
Turro's latest version of the photochemistry book is an outgrowth of his lifelong passion for assimilating, subliming and distilling his thoughts spanning tens of thousands of hours on this topic . The hall mark of Turro's writing style - clarity of thought, inimitable presentation style, addressing the reader directly, student friendly exposition of photochemical events, obvious but hidden allusions and suggestions for further thought, and penchant for integrating the latest in his science - is clearly manifested in this latest book.

I am not amazed at this extraordinary feat emanating from a pioneering expert who chose to coauthor this book with two other excellent photochemists, probably to penetrate and perpetuate the impact of his pedagogic acumen to posterity. I have been a close follower of his photochemistry classics starting from his prototype like precursor to the present endeavor. Let me proudly recall my tryst with Turro's writings with my discovery of his first book on photochemistry (Molecular Photochemistry, Benjamin, New York, 1965) in the summer of 1976 at the sumptuous library of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in Mumbai (where I spent most of my non-experimental hours in that institution during my best youthful days), when I had to initiate my Ph.D. program in the organic photochemistry of laser dyes. Scanning the high energy chemistry shelf at that library, I chose Turro's book with an instant spark of spontaneity, which I never regretted in terms of the gains it entailed in expanding the horizon with minimum effort and maximum efficiency, although some of my then colleagues did not agree with my opinion, which I ever expressed freely being an ardent believer of democratic principles.

This book is absolutely impossible to read. Turro just repeats the same points over and over and over. All the information in Chapters one and two are repeated again and again and AGAIN for the rest of the book in an apparent attempt to make a document that can be turned into a hardcover book and sold for nearly $100. This book is literally the most useless book I have ever purchased. I also purchased the longer version of this book by Turro and had the same experience!

My instructor forced his students to buy this book. He was a Turro student and admitted to being a reviewer of this book, so it was obvious that he had some financial stake in us purchasing the book and wanted to increase his own prestige by trying to increase the popularity of Turro. Ultimately the course wasn't useful and the book even less so.

Now if I was going to write this review in Turro style I would repeat what I just said seven more times to make this comment long, boring, and undigestable. Look to other sources to try to learn Photochemistry and skip this atrocity.

Useful book, has a few typos and errors. To be expected. Good Price with nice information. Diagrams are helpful and theory is well explained.
