Reviews

"Perfect for students and newcomers to science writing. . . . From the composition of the stars to the elements most useful to humans, James offers a cheerful selection of short, fascinating chapters suitable for reading in any order. A wide audience can enjoy this accessible peak into the history of chemistry and the periodic table."-- "Publishers Weekly" (2/19/2019 12:00:00 AM)
"Who said science was dry? Certainly not Tim James. Whether he's discussing strong acids, combustible humans or what would happen if all the elements were mixed together, this book brings the periodic table to life."-- "New York Post" (2/19/2019 12:00:00 AM)
"A science teacher by profession, Mr. James knows how to get his audience's attention. . . . Elemental informs and entertains. . . . With hand-drawn diagrams, wacky humor and assorted facts, Elemental is great fun, taking us to realms beyond anything Mendeleyev ever dreamed of."-- "The Wall Street Journal" (2/19/2019 12:00:00 AM)
