A Material Life: Adventures & Discoveries in Materials Research Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Malcolm Holzman strives to take advantage of the variety of products available, whether time-tested, tired from over-use, relegated to the scrap pile, entirely new or from allied fields.
