beautiful photos, concise descriptions of Elements from the Periodic Table. I was pleasantly surprised with the tongue in cheek humor / hubris of the author. His writing of the cause & analysis of the chemical compounds in some cases is lol. I peruse the picture book at night before bed; I feel like I'm learning something about chemistry w/o being forced to understand chemistry.

Excellent book! Great photographs and information (and a touch of humor) on all of the elements, The author's website on the Periodic Table is also worth looking at.

I can't say I've ever been interested in elements whatsoever, but this book stood out to me on the science shelves and I'm glad I picked it up. Really gives a good, enjoyable rundown of what existence is made of.
