Jack Dunitz: At the time when I was reading that book I was wondering whether chemistry was really
as interesting as I had hoped it was going to be. And I think I was almost ready to
give it up and do something else. I didn't care very much for this chemistry which
was full of facts and recipes and very little thought in it, very little intellectual
structure. And Pauling's book gave me a glimpse of what the future of chemistry was
going to be and particularly, perhaps, my future.
