Summary

Summary

A professor of chemistry dubbed “the new, cooler Bill Nye” (BuzzFeed) reveals the fascinating chemistry we experience every day in this engaging and practical pop science book. Perfect for fans of armchair science books such as those by Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Mary Roach.

Chemistry is everywhere. It’s in our breakfast and our makeup. It’s in the air we breathe and the water we drink. From the moment we wake up and even while we sleep, chemistry is at work—and it doesn’t take PhD in science to understand it.

In this fascinating and entertaining book, chemistry professor and science entertainer Kate Biberdorf—dubbed “the next Bill Nye”—explains the surprising science we experience every day. With her signature wit and infectious energy, Dr. Biberdorf will help you master the fundamental principles of the science that eluded you in high school—and reveals how chemistry comes alive in everything we do and everywhere we go, from the kitchen to the beach.

With easy-to-understand examples and fun experiments to try at home, It’s Elemental will ignite your passion for science and change the way you experience the world.
