I got Periodic Tales in paperback a couple of years ago, but didn't get very far. Not sure why. A college geek was reading it on the metro in Washington, DC, while we were on vacation and we talked about it. I'll have to dig it out again. One of my favorite books is The Double Helix by Watson and Crick. It's a first person account of how they discovered the structure of DNA, complete with randy young men and keeping tabs on competitors. However, they down-played the important contributions of Rosalind Franklin, whose X-Ray of the molecule helped them figure it out.


I found three new books to add to my list. I don't do well with audio books as I tend to make too many mistakes doing anything else. No longer able to multi-task. I miss that talent.
Thanks for sharing your list and the reviews.

Periodic Tales sounds very intriguing. Both my daughter and son-in-law are organic chemists, and I'm always on the lookout for good gifts for them. Thanks for the review!


You would probably like The Disappearing Spoon, also about the periodic table. It's also very well written.

I always enjoy your book posts Vicki. There's a couple here that I will look for at the library.
