    Written by award-winning science writer John Emsley, this informative and highly enjoyable book explains the what, the why and the wherefore of the elements. Arranged alphabetically, from Actinium to Zirconium, it is a complete guide to all the elements that are currently known, with more extensive coverage of those we encounter in our everyday life. The entry on each element reveals where it came from, what role it may have in the human body, the foods that contain it, how it was discovered, its role in human health, the uses and misuses to which it is put, and its environmental role.

    Would you try another book from John Emsley and/or Kevin Scollin?

    maybe


    What was most disappointing about John Emsley’s story?

    it is an encyclopedic listing of elements. what would be more helpful is if some of the terms, such as radioactivity, atom numbers and weights, etc. e.g. more of chemistry was introduced in the beginning, which would make a lot of cryptic text easier to understand. nowadays, you can type the element into wikipedia and it actually gives even more info than this book. putting the info in a context would have made it more useful. more of a chemistry textbook for adults.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Scollin – was your favorite?

    there is no character, it is a science book

    Every day, we make decisions on topics ranging from personal investments to schools for our children to the meals we eat to the causes we champion. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. The reason, the authors explain, is that, being human, we are all susceptible to various biases that can lead us to blunder. Our mistakes make us poorer and less healthy; we often make bad decisions involving education, personal finance, health care, mortgages and credit cards, the family, and even the planet itself.

    Jay says: "An overly long Nudge in the right direction"
    "too general"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    if it was more applicable for an individual


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something i can use


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    it describes the issue quite quickly, the rest of it was general. especially, when it discusses very US specific issues, it is quite boring for an international reader...
