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.
