Looking through the beautiful illustrations of crystal structures reveals the hidden beauty of our world. This book has been prepared by two brothers, one who writes as an emeritus professor of geoloy and the other is an illustrator. Each short chapter has a text with a facing set of illustrations in color. Some are dynamic, such as those of chemical bonds, erionite, and fuel cells. The books adds to our understanding of our complex world, revealing its seldom seen structure. Materialism at its best. ( )

Quick and easy read. The main feature of this book is the large collection of the 3D renderings of various nanoscale molecules, with helpful descriptions of each. ( )
