What a great treatment of this subject! This is excellent in the same way that the old Time-Life history sets were. The material is presented in an easily logical pattern, with lots of interesting facts, photos, and enough tease material to encourage a reader to read further. I've never seen the periodic table presented so simply and clearly to the general public before. Kudos! ( )
