I picked this up at my local Barnes & Noble on the 'Humorous, Helpful & Odd' table, thinking it could be entertaining. I found the story of William Perkin to be extremely interesting -- even as it is being lost to the passage of time. Who would have thought the discovery of mauve, a synthetic aniline dye, would have pioneered the field of applied science?
