Item description for Chemical Creativity: Ideas from the Work of Woodward, Hückel, Meerwein and Others by Jerome A. Berson...

Where are the origins of chemical ideas? How did the pioneers in chemistry recognize the fundamental intellectual issues of their time? What skills of reasoning and experiment did they use to solve these problemes? How did the circumstances of personality and competition influence their careers and scientific accomplishments? If we can answer these questions, we may be able to improve our own chances of success in research.

This is a marvelous book of people and chemical ideas! The author, Jerry Berson, is known as a chemical stylist, a physical organic chemist possessed of the highest analytical powers. In a unique approach to the history of chemistry (indeed the history of science) he brings that style, as well as his insider's knowledge and a perceptive sensivity to the societal setting of chemists, to the analysis of some key chapters in modern organic chemistry. Roald Hoffmann, Nobel Laureate

Reviews - What do customers think about Chemical Creativity: Ideas from the Work of Woodward, Hückel, Meerwein and Others?

For chemists only  Jan 7, 2000
Although it is an excellent book in many respects, it doesn't really tackle the whole issue of creativity. Non-chemists be warned! This book is intended for professional chemists and any non-chemists (or even lapsed chemists) will find much of this book is totally unreadable. A great pity.
A good historical look at the most important chemists  Aug 13, 1999
J. Berson touches on the most important and influential chemists of the history. Although a well written book, it did lack some detail and more recent discoveries using these influences. However, the book did contain enough information to keep the reader interested without getting too technical, ie. no Ph.D necessary to understand his work. I recomend this book as a creativity booster for those graduate students in chemistry who are still trying to find their way.
