KIRKUS REVIEW

This is an exciting book and does a grand job in dramatizing science for the uninitiate, beside crystalizing various facets for those who are in the know. Here are the high spots in 160 years of chemistry:- the men, from Cavendish and Dalton to the unsung chemists in industry today; successive milestones of discovery; the progress from laboratory to dry goods counter, handled with enough sense of adventure and drama and human interest to carry the serious presentation of scientific facts in todays revolution. A thrilling story exceedingly well told.
