In the 24 engaging lectures of The Nature of Matter, no scientific background is needed to appreciate such miracles of everyday life as a bouncing rubber ball or water's astonishing power to dissolve.

one of the most fascinating reads/listens ever
just finished it... starting over immediately. I would definitely recommend this, even if you don't follow along with all the details of the chemistry, it's still worthwhile.
