it was amazing
bookshelves: npr, science-and-medicine
Read from January 07 to February 04, 2012

As heard on the NPR Books podcast.

By the way: the "chemistry is boring" cultural trope needs to die right now, and I really don't appreciate your perpetuating it, NPR.


I was sad this book was as short as it was. I know there are more stories about the elements to tell.
