Teaches students to use the language of sythesis directly (utilizing the grammar of synthon and disconnection) rather than translating it into that of organic chemistry.

Riding on England's many racetracks, Eddie's talent, raw courage and spirit pushes him right to the top to claim the Champion Jockey title at 21. Then he is falsely accused of helping dopers, and his riding licence is taken away. In Warned Off, Eddie's discovery of a murder victim in the racing town of Newmarket, gives him one chance to relaunch his career by single-handedly tracking down the killers. In Hunted, a lone killer is slaughtering jockeys with a terrifying zeal and purpose that mystifies the authorities and the police. There seems no pattern or motive to the murders, until Eddie gets to work on the case and discovers the killer's reasoning and his schedule. Eddie finds he is next on the list. In Blood Ties, Eddie has invested all he has in a stud farm run by an ex-jockey, Martin Corish. The story opens with Eddie taking a call from a blackmailer who claims the stud's star stallion is a ringer. He wants Eddie to stop horses from winning by riding to his instructions. Eddie discovers Corish has run out on him, and in his lone search for the blackmailer, Eddie finds his friend, a vet and amateur jockey, dead in highly suspicious circumstances.
Eddie's quest uncovers failing stallions in studs across England and mares unable to carry foals. Despite all the money the billionaire Arab stud owners throw at it, nobody can work out what is happening to Europe's best bloodstock. Eddie's determination to save his small stud finds him facing killers, blackmailers and the uncovering of a family secret that could kill his father. Warning: as some reviewers have said, you can easily become addicted to Eddie Malloy!
This book marks significant moments in the evolution of gender relations, sexual practices, and notions of sexuality among Filipinos through a reading and re-reading of historical and literary texts from earliest times to the present. Subjugation to Spanish colonialism succeeded in demonizing many of these sexual practices so that today, behavior considered taboo are some customs and rites which are deemed necessary and pleasurable by men and women among Philippine indigenous communities. The discourse in this book is a necessary first step in recuperating what could be a liberating sense of sexuality and gender relations especially for Filipinas in the modern-day world. It is hoped that the discussions will contribute to a sound and healthy discourse on gender and sexuality in the Philippines and finally lead to making sexuality a public discourse—one that can be lived, experienced, and narrated by the men, women, children, and the elderly all over the archipelago, whatever their sexual preferences or orientations.
