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.
