Keys to Chemistry

    Elaine informs me that her book sold more than 100,000 copies before the publisher decided not to revise for later editions. She indicated that even today, many teachers want this book because it has easy-to-decipher diagrams and explains begining concepts in a rational and logical way.
Here is a poem Elaine wrote entitled,
"Keys to Chemistry"
To each of you who come with eager mind,
Young, unprejudiced, and free,
Who seek to give some service to mankind,
I offer you these keys to chemistry.
Use them to reveal old truths already known,
Knowledge that the past has stored;
But may you fashion new keys of your own
Unlocking vistas man has not explored.
(from "Enfold Splendor)
