Gray's "Elements": the finale
In the long-awaited third volume of his iconic "Elements" trilogy, bestselling author Theodore Gray continues his journey through our molecular and chemical world.
Gray and photographer Nick Mann once again put their visual and digital prowess to brilliant work, demonstrating how molecules interact in ways that are essential to our very existence. Following a brief recap of elements and molecules, they explain important concepts that characterize a chemical reaction, including Energy, Entropy, and Time; outline the myriad types of reactions, from Combustion to Photosynthesis; and round out the narrative with a special section on chemical cycles.
Reactions is a beautiful and dramatic conclusion to a landmark science trilogy.
Praise for the "Elements" trilogy
"I don't know if this is the first coffee-table book paying lush photographic homage to the periodic table, but it is certainly the most gorgeous one I've seen."-John Tierney, The New York Times, on The Elements
"The Elements is a loving reimagination of the classic table."-Wired
"Molecules is like dipping your toe in a clear shallow pool-with transparent explanations, shimmering graphics, and luminous photography-then suddenly realizing you are happily swimming in deep waters, relaxed and having fun! The science here is presented so elegantly you'll feel like you are holding a jewelry catalog, and it's impossible to put down."-Jamie Hyneman, Host, MythBusters
"I am so bowled over by Molecules that I can only express my feelings with a one-word blurb: ‘WONDERFUL!'"-Oliver Sacks
