The Disappearing Spoon and Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of Elements by Sam Kean

Incredibly fun history of the periodic table and the elements. Seriously. Kean presents some pretty serious science, but does it in a way that is absolutely accessible. Included are interesting tidbits about the elements and fascinating stories about the people who discovered and worked most closely with them.You will come away with a new appreciation of that little chart you hated so much in high school.
