GALEN`S LECTURES introduces many of the broad subjects described in a general chemistry class. These include the structure of the atom, electron configurations, the octet rule and the basics of covalent and ionic bonding. Also included is orbital hybridization and orbital mixing. Chemical reactivity, the role of energy in chemical reactions and their activation is discussed in GALEN`S LECTURES as well as reaction equilibria and Le Chatelier`s principle. Acids and bases and concepts concerning oxidation-reduction reactions are also covered.

GALEN`S LECTURES also tells the story of an idealistic chemistry instructor, Mason Galen, who, as he tries to rebuild his shattered life, learns, over the course of one tempestuous semester of teaching, that he must choose between his passion for science, as revealed in his chemistry lectures, and self-preservation.

Interwoven within the story are the chemistry lectures presented by Galen to the students in his class. As Galen`s life unfolds in the narrative, the chemistry unfolds in his lectures and the reader comes to see chemistry as an integral part of the human experience. At the narrative level these lectures offer insight into Mason Galen the man, but on a practical level they provide the reader a solid introduction to, and a broad overview of, the general chemistry that most students encounter as college freshmen. Since these chemistry concepts are framed in the emotional context of a storyline, they appear in a format more familiar and accessible to the reader than the stark, technical format of conventional science based text books.

But GALEN`S LECTURES is not intended only for the college student. Because of its structure, anyone who encounters chemistry in their jobs or hobbies, chemistry teachers who might like to see chemistry teaching from another point of view, or readers who hold even a passing interest in learning some chemistry will find GALEN`S LECTURES not only an entertaining and readable novel but an accessible source of information that would otherwise be available to them only through standard college chemistry coursework. Since GALEN`S LECTURES avoids a mathematics based treatment of chemistry and includes no problem sets or exams, GALEN`S LECTURES comes with none of the intrusive pressure that disrupts the satisfaction of learning science in a classroom environment. Instead, it offers a comfortable introduction for those who wish to learn chemistry for the casual satisfaction of doing so. In GALEN`S LECTURES, the chemistry belongs to the reader to be absorbed or ignored at the reader`s discretion.
