"Everything physical is made up of the elements and the infinite variety of molecules they form when they combine with each other. In [this book], Gray takes the next step in the grand story that began with the periodic table in his best-selling book The Elements ... Here, he explores ... the most interesting, essential, useful, and beautiful of the millions of chemical structures that make up every material in the world"--Amazon.com.
