Recently, I received a advertisement from the American
Chemical Society for some of their publications. The ad
for one of the books (which seems interesting to me) is given
below. Since the book is not cheap, I would like to know
whether anyone has seen this book and has anything to say
about whether it is worth getting. While on the topic of
molecular modelling books, are there any other texts which
offer an introductory overview of the field. Any advice
would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
