When you see the connections, you'll see the chemistry. Today's students use textbooks differently than in the past; and Chemistry , Sixth Edition is designed to map to the way you seek and process information. Based on actual conversations with students about how they study, McMurry/Fay's text helps both students and professors get to the heart of chemistry more effectively. This book is known for a smart, precise presentation that blends the quantitative and visual aspects of general chemistry. Features like Remember..., Conceptual Problems, Conceptual Worked Examples, Inquiry and Worked Examples make these critical connections clear and visible, so you'll really see the chemistry the first time.

Burtles' first involvement with disaster recovery was in 1974 as a field engineer responsible for repairing and recovering a critical banking system struck by lightning. He went on to become IBM's disaster recovery country specialist before joining a disaster recovery service as their principal emergency management consultant in 1987. In 2001 he set out on his own as the principal of Total Continuity Management, where he now focuses on executive level training and the development of specialist emergency response skills. Throughout all these years he tended to specialize in serving the personal needs of those involved in emergency situations.

This was published in 1998 as A Counselor's Guide to the Restabilization Process. His practical experience includes hands-on recovery work with victims of such violent events as riots, bombings, earthquakes, storms, and fires. This includes technical assistance and support in 90-odd disasters, as well as advice and guidance for clients in over 200 emergency situations.
