The book begins with the modern concepts of organic chemical reactivity, then presents a concise up to date account of the mechanisms of major reactions of simple organic compounds.
Each chapter leads the student from the experimental evidence to the mechanistic deductions, and ends with problems for students to work through, and a short bibliography.
