Through an innovative, closely integrated design of images and text, and his characteristically clear, precise, and economical exposition, Peter Atkins explains the processes involved in chemical reactions. He begins by introducing a "tool kit" of basic reactions, such as precipitation,corrosion, and catalysis, and concludes by showing how these building blocks are brought together in more complex processes such as photosynthesis.

Very well written. Provides details of different reactor designs [but at level most would want to see], discusses pro/con of using, altenative sources---costs, time frame to develop---and other topics.
Seems very objective and fair.
