The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean

The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the ElementsThe 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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars (8/10)

I very engaging, easy to read look at the history of the periodic table. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and hope to get to read Kean’s other book, The Violinist’s Thumb: And Other Lost Tales of Love, War, and Genius, as Written by Our Genetic Code, when it’s a little cheaper for my Kindle.

This proves that friends are evil, as I saw this on the shelf at a friend’s house at the weekend, read the Introduction in his copy and then bought it and read it for myself. We all need evil friends.

  1. This is one I keep adding to online shopping carts and then removing at the last minute. I have to stop doing that because I really want to read it! I’m glad you enjoyed it so much. And yes, evil friends rule.
