When one of Randi Conway's psychotherapy patients is found dead of a gunshot wound, the investigation is turned over to Lieutenant Anthony Walker. Formerly a New York City cop, Walker now serves on the police force of an affluent community in Fairfield County, Connecticut. He lives among the privileged gentry, where he understands that appearances are often far removed from reality. This certainly proves to be true in the death of Elizabeth Knoebel, when Walker discovers that she had been keeping a private journal entitled "SEXUAL RITES". In her diary, Elizabeth was recording the explicit details of her sexual adventures with various men, many of whom were married to the women in her therapy group. Elizabeth was a predator bent on seducing and, in some instances, humiliating these men, obsessed with a perverse mission that Walker believes led to her murder. As Walker uncovers the secrets of Elizabeth's memoir, he becomes convinced that her killer is another of Randi Conway's patients. But which one?

Chang's newest text is intended for use in a one-semester introductory course in physical chemistry for students of the biosciences. The author emphasizes the understanding of physical concepts rather than focussing on precise mathematical development or on actual experimental details. Only basic skills of differential and integral calculus are required to understand the equations. The extensive array of end of chapter problems have both physicochemical and biological applications, and a detailed Solutions Manual is available.

A Choice Outstanding Academic Title (2005)This is a wonderful and entertaining book. The title reflects the authors' desire that their work be considered a primer for the curious adult...I cannot think of any chemistry book I have read that has been more successful than this one in meeting such an ambitious goal...extremely well-written. The tone and pacing are reader-friendly...This would be a great book club selection...would also be a great book for the chemistry teacher at the high school level or introductory college level...I give the book my strongest recommendation.-Journal of Chemical EducationThink of this as a chemistry education condensed into a single book: a lightning tour of the field for the uninitiated.-Publishers WeeklyThe discussions presented are well written and accurate...It would be a useful supplemental text for an introductory high school or college chemistry course...the lab demonstrations alone would be an excellent resource for the junior high or high school science teacher.-Science Books & FilmsIf chemistry was never your cup of tea, you'll become a convert with The Joy of Chemistry ... With a simple set of grocery store chemicals and a good pair of safety goggles, adults can rediscover the basics of chemistry while having fun. Even though it's not written for students, this book's common sense safety advice and the sense of wonder that pervades every pages will inspire general science teachers to adapt many of these explorations for the classroom.-Science ScopeFor many, chemistry is perceived as a burdensome affair, weighed down with mathematics and restricted to well-guarded research facilities. While these facets of chemistry are certainly of paramount importance, laboratories and calculators do not necessarily convey the inherent beauty of chemistry or the excitement of chemistry at work.This book challenges the perception of chemistry as too difficult to bother with and too clinical to be any fun. Cathy Cobb and Monty L. Fetterolf, both professional chemists and experienced educators, introduce readers to the magic, elegance, and, yes, joy of chemistry. From the fascination of fall foliage and fireworks, to the functioning of smoke detectors and computers, to the fundamentals of digestion (as when good pizza goes bad!), the authors illustrate the concepts of chemistry in terms of everyday experience, using familiar materials.The authors begin with a bang-a colorful bottle rocket assembled from common objects you find in the garage-and then present the principles of chemistry using household chemicals and friendly, nontechnical language. They guide the reader through the basics of atomic structure, the nature of molecular bonds, and the vibrant universe of chemical reactions. Using analogy and example to illuminate essential concepts such as thermodynamics, photochemistry, electrochemistry, and chemical equilibrium, they explain the whys and wherefores of chemical reactions. Hands-on demonstrations, selected for their ease of execution and relevance, illustrate basic principles, and lively commentaries emphasize the fun and fascination of learning about chemistry.This delightful and richly informative book amply proves that chemistry can appeal to our intuition, logic, and-if we're willing to get down and dirty-our sense of enjoyment too.Cathy Cobb is the highly acclaimed author of Magick, Mayhem, and Mavericks: The Spirited History of Physical Chemistry and, with H. Goldwhite, Creations of Fire: Chemistry's Lively History from Alchemy to the Atomic Age. She is currently an instructor of calculus and physics at Aiken Preparatory School and an adjunct professor of chemistry at the University of South Carolina at Aiken.Monty L. Fetterolf is professor of chemistry at the University of South Carolina at Aiken.

It was supposed to be quick, easy, and cheap: the Bush administration promised American taxpayers that Iraqi oil revenues would pay for it all. But thousands of lives and billions of dollars later, the Iraqi reconstruction is an undeniable failure, overrun by staggering corruption, waste, and incompetence. In BLOOD MONEY, "top-flight investigative reporter" (Mother Jones) T. Christian Miller reveals how the Bush administration failed to keep its promises and allowed a nation to tumble into chaos. Widely hailed as one of the most important books about the quagmire, BLOOD MONEY is essential reading for anyone who cares about the fate of Iraq, and about America's place in the world.
