Good Science Reads: Theodore Gray’s “The Elements”

So if you are looking for some good reading on scientific topics let me highly recommend to you the beautiful book “The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe” by Theodore Gray.  Gray writes with a quick wit that makes the information that he provides not just fascinating but also funny and greatly enjoyable.  Add to that the multitude of lovely photographs and the vast amount of Periodic table trivia and you’ve got yourself a real good book to look into.  Admittedly I am only on element 13, Aluminum, in the book, but thus far I have enjoyed all that I have read.

If you can’t get your hands on the book right away, I recommend Mr. Gray’s website periodictable.com which gives you a good idea of the informationy ou’ll find in the book.  Enjoy!
