In general, an omitted comma may seem a insignificant. However, like the misplaced decimal, it does carry considerable meaning.
Amazon advertised "Essential Organic and Biochemistry" next to "Fundamentals of General Oranic and Biological Chemistry". However, the cover title for the latter is "Funamentals of General, Organic and Biological Chemistry". Essentially, the "General" of the latter reads as the "Essential" of the former.
The book was inexpensive. While it had fewer pages on the Organic and Bio Chem then I had hoped, it was probably enough for my needs. Not a biggie!
Amazon is a first rate operation!
Please keep in mind that punctuation matters.
