Description

Our world is ruled by chemistry. It is the study of matter and energy at the scale of atoms and molecules. As the most all-embracing discipline there is, it should be at the top of everyone’s list of must-learn subjects. 

Chemistry and Our Universe: How It All Works is your in-depth introduction to this vital field, taught through 60 engaging half-hour lectures that are suitable for any background or none at all. Covering a year’s worth of introductory general chemistry at the college level, plus intriguing topics that are rarely discussed in the classroom, this amazingly comprehensive course requires nothing more advanced than high-school math. Your guide is Professor Ron B. Davis, Jr., a research chemist and award-winning teacher at Georgetown University. 

With passion and humor, Professor Davis guides you through the fascinating world of atoms, molecules, and their remarkable interactions, showing you how to think, analyze problems, and predict outcomes like a true expert in the field. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great Professor, Hard to Follow.

The professor is fantastic and I enjoyed listening, but the content is very technical which makes it hard to follow while just listening and not seeing his mathematical and structural examples. This content is better suited as a visual lecture rather than auditory in my opinion.

Not good as audio only

The instruction is clearly meant for visual presentation. Repeatedly refers to things that must be on screen in a video version, but without a meaningful audio description. I did not finish listening.

Chemistry how it works

Very good lecture. In-depth chemistry, sometimes difficult to understand without Video and slides. Enjoyed, stimulates to refer and learn more about Earth and Universe Chemistry.

not meant to be listened to

I have listened to a lot of the great courses series, and this is the first that was completed impossible to listen to. It is filled with visual experiments. He would also go over formulas and use other visual aids without really describing them. So it wasn't long before I was completely lost.
He did wet my appetite for learning the material, but I will have to turn elsewhere.

Great Companion to the Video Course

I see some complaining on here that you need to see what Dr. Davis is saying. I already own the video course, but going to classes I would like to review what I have watched at home while driving to school in the car, which makes this a perfect purchase for me. While it can be used as a stand alone purchase (because much of chemistry is conceptual) I highly recommend getting both the video course from Great Courses as well as this. Sometimes to really learn something well you must be willing to spend the money to do so. All the best!

One Year Pre-Med Chemistry Requited

The year of chemistry allows me to listen most of the time and only refer to the PDF occasionally. Very well done. The supplemental PDF adds more clarity and complements the lectures. The lecturer referes to illistrations in the PDF. The narrator was perfect. I used this course in chemistry to help with understanding human cell biology: Topology, protein folding, DNA, etc. Nice to refresh the fundementals.

Lacks Visuals DON'T bother buying it

Was really looking forward to learning Chem basics... BUT... this is just the audio part of a DVD. The presentation is great... BUT >>>>> IT is NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to understand without VISUALS as in diagrams etc. They do present the Periodic Table BUT... not much else. I had to spend a lot of time online looking up a lot of the basics here... GAVE UP after a while. ALAS!!!!!

Fascinating!

Why didn't I pay more attention to chemistry when I was in school? It's suddenly extremely interesting to me and this Audible selection really made it seem fun. I look forward to my kids needing help with their chemistry homework, so I can learn along with them!

Absolutely loved it.

Great for any beginner who wants to learn how to love chemistry. Ground level fundamentals, these lectures have really increased my desire to learn more about chemistry.

Great reference

A wealth of Chemistry info. I will definitely watch it next to get the visuals.

Not for the faint-hearted

Professor Davis' course is a real university level introduction into chemistry. A lot of math, including logarithm, exponential functions and calculus. The first 30 (!) lessons are pure physics: Quantummechanics, Orbital Theorie, Solid State Physics, Thermodynamicss. In the second part these basics will put into work in chemistry proper. So this course is surely not easy listening but if you are prepared for a bit of mental work your reward is enormous: You learn "How it all works". The material in the pdf is excellent and absolutely necessary for the understanding of several lessons. I guess you will either love this course or shake your head and cry: Spare me!
