    [BOOK] The Disappearing Spoon And Other True Tales of Madness Love and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements Author Sam Kean – fukahire.co.uk I should have liked this book and I can't really explain why I didn't It's not poorly written though it ain't Solzhenitsyn and it's not that uninteresting of a topic but I just found that after the first 40ish pages I dreaded having to read It was like pulling teeth only a bit less painful even without the option of novocaineI think part of it was that the book wasn't well organized The author seemed to jump

The Collected Memoirs of Ian Mosley efforts I guess it would take than a fun book to turn me into a chemistry person But it was still a wonderful read and not a guilty pleasure because it was actuallyducational This meant I could feel virtuous for once while I ignored my various responsibilities in favor of readingSo not only did I get to EL SUTIL ARTE DE QUE (CASI TODO) TE IMPORTE UNA MIERDA (HARPERCOLLINS) enjoy a good book I feel vindicated in my ongoing belief that a a sufficiently good writer can make any topic interestingven to a reluctant reader Yes sometimes it pays to leave your reading comfort zone And when it doesn t you have very right to complain because it is about the book not just about a personal bias with regard to the content For a good book there should be no such thing as a right or wrong reader Okay Let me tell it to you honestlyThis book is not the most well written book the sentences are clunky and there is not a clear narrative It is much of a rambling collection of stories and facts and uirky science knowledgeThat said I couldn t get back to reading this fast nough I thought about a book about the scientific table throughout the day I stole a few minutes wherever I could I carried this book with me and was Hunter Moon (Grazi Kelly even gasparly to pick up the kids so that I could read a few minutes in the carI mean the opening factoid is about our ability to trace Lewis Clark s trail by following the mercury laced poop trail I love that shit Growing up I never loved science I didn t learn the periodic table in school like others did And so there were times in this book where I only understood a few clauses in The Diary of Darcy J. Rhone (Darcy Rachel, each paragraph because the concepts were so advanced but the author did a great job of bringing it back to a laypersons comprehension in the next paragraph So in summary this book is written for all levels of science or not nerds It is full of incredible tales and the fun secrets and stories of the people involved in the development of the periodic table and science as we know itI will absolutely be rereading this book most definitely when the boys are learning the periodic table in school I should have liked this book and I can t reallyxplain why I didn t It s not poorly written though it ain t Solzhenitsyn and it s not that uninteresting of a topic but I just found that after the first 40ish pages I dreaded having to read It was like pulling teeth only a bit less painful 7 Navykov Vysokoeffektivnykh Lyudej even without the option of novocaineI think part of it was that the book wasn t well organized The author seemed to jump around the periodic table at his whim without keeping a consistent framework perhaps that was the point it was a bit unclear to me Anyway the writing is OKishnough and it is certainly very well researched so I can understand why many people have liked it And it s really not a bad science book but for some reason I just found myself having a viscerally negative reaction to having to read the next chapter well I guess I didn t have to keep reading on but whatever I don t know I wish I could pinpoint the source of my discontent with this but it is what it is so feel free to try it out for yourself The spoon disappeared in a cup of tea as the spoon was made out of gallium that melts at 29 C not my cup of tea This book is rich in Lichtenstein empiricalvidence and interesting tales of the last 200 years of history and discoveries of the chemical The Roman Object Revolution elements of the periodic table However the countless stories lacked the threads that could have given them a common fabricThe periodic table which is currently comprised of 118lements 112 at the time the book was written is an ongoing process The number of lements in Why did Gandhi hate iodine I 53 Why did the Japanese kill Godzilla with missiles made of cadmium Cd 48 How did radium Ra 88 nearly ruin Marie Curie's reputation And why did tellurium Te 52 lead to the most bizarre gold rush in historyThe periodic table is one of our crowning scientific achievements but it's also a treasur. ,
