Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- An excellent introduction to the specific elements. The book provides the following information for each of the first 94 elements: a chart of basic data; a structural diagram; and a discussion of the historical background, chemical properties, laboratory and commercial production, and the compounds and isotopes. Elements 95 through 107 are discussed individually but more briefly. Elements 108 and up are lumped together in a short discussion. Although some knowledge of basic chemistry is required, this is quite readable and will be appreciated by high school students starting their research. Its organization enables readers to make quick, accurate comparisons between elements, while the comprehensive index pulls together research by various chemists.-- Claudia Moore, W.T. Woodson High Sch . , Fairfax, VA
A popular dictionary of the elements giving the physical constants, discoverer, historical background, production, isotopes. It is reprehensible to publish such an introduction with no bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Good Guide to the Chemical Elements

    This book is well organized and readable. I use it in my high school chemistry classes to help my students. Each element is explained with the same format. Nice historical anecdotes start off each section on an element. Good book to read to refresh or improve your knowledge.
