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

Posted at — Dec 8, 2019

Lively book about the periodic table, and physics, and wars, and quirky scientists, and assorted this and that. Accessible to a layman reader even if they don’t remember much from school (given some readiness to encounter the word ‘proton’ quite a few times).
