The Disappearing Spoon

The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the ElementsThe Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements by Sam Kean

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If this had been my textbook in high school science, I’d be in graduate school for chemistry right now. They should name a periodic square for Sam Kean, to denote rare earth elements rich with can’t-put-down-ability. This is an amazing book with astounding revelations on nearly every page. You’ll learn more about chemistry and physics than you ever thought possible while busting your gut. Five stars is not enough. Sam Kean: Write a sequel. Soon!
