The Art of Organic Chemistry

As a student of Chemistry, I would take the approach of Science is Art.  Now being a scientist you might not think of Science as Art, but I would argue that you have to look at every element, molecule, compound, etc as building blocks to creating whatever masterpiece that you want.
 
Whatever you do, make sure that you remember that a piece of paper is a two-dimensional plane, and you have to make three-dimensional art.  In addition, things on the paper are moving with animation - enjoy the mystery.
 
Please start your Organic career right by picking up "The Art of Writing Reasonable Organic Reaction Mechanisms" by Robert B. Grossman.  You will never miss an electron, understand orbitals better or write a better mechanism with this book.  In addition, this book points out common errors so you don't make the same mistakes.
