A presentation of total syntheses from organic chemists, analyzing each retrosynthetically to make strategies more accessible. The authors give hints on alternative methods and potential pitfalls. Emphasis is placed on the use of graphics and schemes: reaction sequences and synthetically crucial steps are presented in blue boxed sections; important formulas are, in addition, depicted in the margin, next to the passage where they are mentioned in the text.
