Throwing the Book at Elementary Chemistry.
Pauling, Linus
Science Teacher, v50 n6 p25-29 Sep 1983

Suggests that since these books tend to be too long, too advanced, and too heavy, revisions should be shorter and less costly, with confusing aspects of chemistry (such as molecular-orbital theory) left out completely.
