There is No definition of the entropy. In the books, the entropy is usually introduced through differential equations relating the enthalpy and Gibb's free energy. However, that is an explanation advanced. For simplicity, the entropy is the disorder. Thus, when the system shows a decrease in the entropy of the system, the molecules are put in order. For example, the freezing of the water put in order, because the liquid molecules of water are converted into solid crystals. In relation to a decrease of the entropy of the reaction is not spontaneous.
