"Are you facing one of those classic dilemmas – a tough examination in basic organic chemistry, and a dauntingly bulky textbook to wade through? Joshua Howarth′s Core Organic Chemsitry is your lifeline. A useful reviison aid, it strips the subject to its bare essentials, summarises key concepts and provides a host of questions for practice." (New Scientist, March 1999)

"The quality of presentation of both text and diagrams is excellent, and the content, with some minor exceptions, is exactly what I would expect to find. I believe that all students of chemistry should have access to this book; it really does tell you everything you need to know for a degree course in organic chemistry....I think that this book will make its way onto the reading lists of most university chemistry departments." (Dr Mark Elliott, Department of Chemistry, University of Cardiff, Chemistry in Britain, June 1999)
