THE ELEMENTS:
THE NEW GUIDE TO THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF OUR UNIVERSE

  
(Second hand copy in very good condition)
  
By Jack Challoner

 

What links the Taj Mahal and our skeleton? The Eiffel Tower and our blood? The salt on our chips and the street lamps that guide us home? The answers are calcium, iron and sodium – each one an element. The elements make up everything, and this book is the perfect guide to every one of them.

  

Forged in the Big Bang and supernovas, the elements and their resulting compounds created our Solar System, the planet we live on, the air we breathe, the water we rely on, and the proteins that would become life.  This beautiful book features every one of the 118 known elements.
