Summary, etc.:
In this practical pop science book, a scientist dubbed "the Cooler Bill Nye" looks at how we experience chemistry every day. From the time we wake up until the time we go to sleep (and even while we sleep), chemistry is at work. Biberdorf is lighting the world on fire and changing the face of chemistry as we know it, and here she demystifies the fundamental principles that may have eluded you in high school. She shows how chemistry come alive in everything we do, from making bread dough rise to the energy boost you get from your cup of coffee.
