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

It always warms my heart to find someone else who has such a love for the periodic table. I've read a lot of books about it but I think this is my favorite. Sam's writing style is engaging and he certainly did a lot of research. History is not really my thing so to be able to learn about it in the context of something I enjoy was a boon to me. There are so many intriguing stories that I would recommend it to anyone, not just science geeks like myself!
