I would pitty anyone who had to learn organic synthesis from that book.
Why? This if wonderfull book! I really like it. But it has some drawbacks, such as little illustrative and factical material (most of reactions are given in common schemes).
I think, that the best organic chemistry books - is articles!!!(Especially Chemical Reviews and many others)
I from Russia, and we have fine OC book - Reutov, Kurtz, Butin - "Organic chemistry"/ If anybody wants this book, I may shared with him by any fileshared system! Good-bye!
