The Elements is a visually pleasing coffee table book that takes you on an adventure through the periodic table page by page for each element. Sometimes humurous, and always informative the short wright-ups pack a punch but don't tell it all, oh well. It has a pull out periodic table poster at the back that I would just hate to pull out of the book. It's still a great book and well worth the money for a non-scientific person like myself who likes to collect dictionaries on various subjects. This book may come in handy as reference material for my future writing endevours like my Kindle books: Theory of Sevens, Two Feral Waifs, and Fire Escape.
