Books inspired by the ‘International Year of Chemistry’ June 7, 2011Posted by Steven in Wishlist.
Well who would have thought that? The international year of chemistry and a very interesting radio broadcast around that topic inspired me to set some more books onto my wishlist. Let’s see what we have:
The actual info and recommendation came from this radio broadcast. It was a very committed and interesting show of how scientific authors weave the topic of chemistry into great compelling stories.
Sam Kean: Die Ordnung der Dinge
Sam Kean: The Joy of Chemistry: The Amazing Science of Familiar Things
- very instructive
- compelling story
- journey through the years and details of Chemistry
Christian Mähr: von Alkohol bis Zucker: 12 Substanzen, die die Welt veränderten
- journey via the connecting stream of certain substances
- every day value
Hubert Mania: Kettenreaktion: Die Geschichte der Atombombe
- Extremely quick historic Journey
- sovereign detail (Mme Curie cooking the radioactive substances next to her lunch)
