From the Back Cover
Presents a balanced presentation of the macroscopic view of empirical kinetics and the microscopic molecular viewpoint of chemical dynamics. Stressing interconnections between phenomenological chemical kinetics and molecular reaction dynamics, the book discusses reactions in gas phase, liquids, and at surfaces; molecular potential surfaces; gas-gas and gas-surface theories applied to reactive collisions. It features applications to atmospheric chemistry, combustion, and chemical lasers as well as multiple methods for solving kinetic equations. It also addresses topics not found in other books: Information theory, Stochastic simulation, and Sensitivity analysis. The second edition of Chemical Kinetics and Dynamics has been revised to include the latest information as well as new topics, such as heterogeneous reactions in atmospheric chemistry, reactant product imaging, and molecular dynamics of H + H2. It provides an experimental observation of the transition state ("Femtochemistry"); new treatment of stratospheric chemistry, including heterogeneous processes, balance among catalytic cycles, environmental consequences, and policy implications as well as current database information on NIST kinetics as well as JPL evaluations. A valuable resource on kinetics for professional atmospheric kineticists and chemical engineers.

The problems at the end of the chapter are excellent in that they require the reader to take the knowledge they have been given and have to apply it to situations they have not been walked through step by step with the authors holding the reader by the hand. This is an advanced undergraduate, graduate student level text and should be treated as such. Though the topic itself is not that challenging they have written an excellent text that will challenge the reader to push the boundaries of their current knowledge.
If you are having a hard time seeing the connection between the problems at the end of the chapter and what preceded said problems, you likely did not understand the material and thus are not ready to tackle the problems.
Read with care and patience, the payoff will be great.
I would recommend this book only to people who have a very complete background in kinetics and dynamics as a nice reference book.
