Reviews: DESIGNING THE MOLECULAR WORLD: Chemistry at the Frontier

Designing the Molecular World: Chemistry at the Frontier, a book by Philip Ball

“Lucidly written, with an acute awareness of recent advances and an excellent understanding of their intrinsic scientific content.” Sir Harold Kroto, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Physics World

“Designing the Molecular World is a tour de force of popular science writing: nothing less than a survey, in considerable depth, of the frontiers of modern chemistry.”John Postgate, The Times Literary Supplement

Reviews: INVISIBLE: The Dangerous Allure of the Unseen

Book cover - Invisible: The Dangerous Allure of the Unseen

“Ball leads us on a very fun, largely chronological journey through invisibility, beginning with myth and early magicians, ending with quantum physics, and stopping along the way at Newton, Leibniz, microscopy, photography, spiritualism, B movies, and science fiction. He is lucid and interesting on every topic he touches, from the ghost in “Hamlet” to those unseen extra dimensions posited by string theory.” Kathryn Schultz, New Yorker (here)
