  Life of Fred: Chemistry
Noah W. of Hillsboro, OR, 8/22/2016
Life of Fred: Chemistry presents the mysteries of chemistry in an easy-to-read, engaging fashion. Possibly the only storybook chemistry textbook that exists, It follows Fred as he winds up teaching a chemistry class. I think the fashion in which the book is written makes it easier to learn (for instance, I remember what a mole is because the author calculates how a mole of jelly beans would make a cube over 361 miles on each side). I would recommend this textbook to any young beginning chemist.
