Praise for The Periodic Table Book

...in this bright, brand-new publication from DK those new to the wonders of chemistry are able to understand it better through the use of clear explanations and thousands of photographs and diagrams, starting with an explanation of just what an element is.

Barbara Braxton, Teacher Librarian, The Bottom Shelf

All in all this is a well presented book that can pull its own weight in the arena of books about the elements, but is also accessible for young and future scientists as well as those of us who have let our knowledge of the periodic table slip a little in the years since school.

Stephanie O'Connell, 100% Rock Magazine

...this book has so many things that you can discover!
