26 Reviews
This is a journey of imagination in which the periodic table is treated as a country, a periodic kingdom, each region of which corresponds to an element. The book introduces the reader (who needs no prior knowledge of chemistry) to the general features of the table, the history of the elements and the underlying arrangement of the table in terms of the structure and properties of atoms.

Review: The Periodic Kingdom: A Journey Into The Land Of The Chemical Elements

User Review  - Paul - Goodreads

I am not sure what the book would give for a non-initiate, but I myself am a chemist and found the book to be rather shallow. I hoped it would explain the table of the chemical elements in a more fun way. As it is, I found it did not succeed very well. Read full review
