Format: Hardcover
this collection of assays allows you to catch the depth of thought of Prof. Hoffmann. Having had the opportunity to attend his lectures during graduate school in Switzerland I sensed his astonishing complexity of reasoning. This book is certainly a great opportunity to learn some and it is a witnessing of his breadth of knowledges. Highly recommended.

Roald Hoffman is a world known chemist. He discusses several issues related to chemistry. It shows that chemistry is related to humanities. It is a good book for those interested in the philosophy of chemistry. So I recommend it.
