Both inspiration and information in a book that will be exciting reading for the young high school student with his mind on chemistry. Written by the vocational editor of Scholastic, the book vividly pictures modern chemical achievements and processes in many fields -- industry, agriculture, pharmacy, etc. -- with a special eye to the vocational opportunities and training requirements for each. Excellent chapters too, on women in chemistry, and on ""The Composition of the Chemist"". Packed with information, yet never dull reading, this is altogether a valuable book.
