Revue de presse

Review from previous edition If the intimate workings of molecules seem invisible, through Philip Ball's lively pros we see them--coming to life, helping us live. A special delight of this excellent book is the tie that emerges between the wondrous molecules of nature and those chemists make in the laboratory. (Ronald Hoffmann, Chemistry Nobel Laureate 1981)

Almost no aspect of the exciting advances in molecular research studies at the beginning of the 21st Century has been left untouched and in so doing, Ball has presented an imaginative, personal overview, which is as instructive as it is enjoyable to read. (Harry Kroto, Chemistry Nobel Laureate 1996)

At no point does Stories of the Invisible sacrifice sound science for sound bites - we are in the hands of a scholar and true believer. (John Emsley Nature 20/08/2001)

This is a very readable and non-technical survey . . . All of the ingredients of a good work of ficiton are here. It really is a good bedtime read for all. (THES 04/01/2002)

Stories of the Invisible is a lucid account of the way that chemists see the molecular world . . . the text is enriched with many historical and literature references, and is accessible to the reader untrained in chemistry (THES, 04/01/2002)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The processes in a single living cell are akin to that of a city teeming with molecular inhabitants that move, communicate, cooperate, and compete. In this Very Short Introduction, Philip Ball explores the role of the molecule in and around us - how, for example, a single fertilized egg can grow into a multi-celled Mozart, what makes spider's silk insoluble in the morning dew, and how this molecular dynamism is being captured in the laboratory, promising to reinvent chemistry as the central creative science of the century. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

My training is in Physics, and I have not had a chance to read-up on Chemistry in a long while. I decided to read this book in order to get a better bird's eye view of what the modern Chemistry is up to these days. As such, this book was a great introduction, and brought me up to speed with some of the more recent developments. Thanks to this book and some other info I got, I was able to piece things together and figure out what some of the more advanced research in the conventional explosives is all about.

Interesting, but not very educational... 11 février 2012
Par ChemStudent - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
My first complaint of this book is that I think it focused too heavily on biological molecules as opposed to a more general overview. Secondly, the book just goes through and list lots and lots of different types of molecules and gives very brief descriptions of them. It doesn't actually talk about the molecular structures or the energy changes which occur as the result of the bonding or how different environments cause different types of bonds to form. There is also a huge section that basically just lists the steps of cellular respiration. There are no pictures of the structures and how they change in this process...it felt like I was in biology class, trying to memorize a list of steps with no real knowledge of the chemistry that causes them to happen. Basically, this book tells you a little bit of interesting information about some cool types of molecules, but I didn't actually learn anything that I could apply to other situations.

Topics too scattered 19 mars 2012

I bought this book with high expectations - I wanted to increase my knowledge about the molecular world that makes up our Universe. Unfortunately, this book was to disorganized to be of any real use to me. The topics seemed scattered all across the book. I had to put the book down after perusing through its chapters because I realized that I was not going to increase my knowledge of chemistry by reading it.
