Chemicals often have a negative Image among the general public.
But there is no material world or indeed human beings without chemicals.
The material world is operated by chemicals. The title `Chemicals for Life and Living' implies that the material world is staged and played by chemicals.
The book consists of five parts and an appendix. Part 1 - Essentials for life; Part 2 - Enhancing health; Part 3 - For the fun of life; Part 4 - Chemistry of the universe and earth, and Part 5 - Some negative effects of chemicals.
The appendix gives a brief summary of what chemistry is all about, including a short chapter of chemical principles.
No quantitative calculations are included in this book so that it is appealing for everyone - not just chemists.
