" Read on your Fire, iPad, or laptop with free Kindle reading apps". Wrong!!!
Doesn't compatible with Kindle for PC Win8!!! (my laptop is out of bound for this 60$ book, why isn't it mentioned somewhere?)
It should be notified under the "Digital Features:" section, and it is not the first time that a book isn't compatible with all Kindle versions!

I have many complaints about the 'upgrades' from second edition.
The transition is incredibly sloppy. Most glaringly, the editors compiled the glossary and end of section questions to be located right after each chapter. To save a little bit of extra flipping, they sacrificed a coherent glossary of coherent terms.
However, the most egregious error is that they removed the Appendices from this edition yet still reference the appendices in several sections, and rely on these thermodynamic tables heavily in chapter 17. My students cannot complete the work without outside thermodynamic reference tables.
This glaring oversight has made several topics (Standard enthalpy, entropy and Gibbs Free energy, Ionization constants, half-cell potentials, solubility product constants, impossible without an outside source. I do not find this book as useful the other editions.
