This book aims to teach the use of symmetry arguments to the typical experimental chemist in a way that he will find meaningful and useful. At the same time I have tried to avoid that excessive and unnecessary superficiality which only leads, in the end, to incompetence and its attendant frustrations. The student who masters this book will know what he is doing, why he is doing it, and how to do it. The range of subject matter is that which, in my judgment, the great majority of organic, inorganic, and physical chemists are likely to encounter in their daily research activity. - Preface.
