My daughter used this book for a project for school, and had looked at the preview online when she forgot something. I was interested, and read the preview. It was fascinating, and I didn't even know that carbon was in some of the things mentioned. My daughter also said that this book was very helpful, and certainly would be a great resource for anyone else.
