I knew next to nothing about the history of alchemy going into this book and I found it to be interesting.

It did a nice job of informing me on what alchemy actually was. In simple terms it is a pre-chemistry with religious/spiritual influence.

It gives a nice history starting from the earliest days of conception to now mentioning important roles society and certain people played into contributing to form the chemistry we know today.
