Posted by Steven in Wishlist.

Gifts for Me!

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)
  • thrilling
