"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From School Library Journal
YA-- An excellent introduction to the specific elements. The book provides the following information for each of the first 94 elements: a chart of basic data; a structural diagram; and a discussion of the historical background, chemical properties, laboratory and commercial production, and the compounds and isotopes. Elements 95 through 107 are discussed individually but more briefly. Elements 108 and up are lumped together in a short discussion. Although some knowledge of basic chemistry is required, this is quite readable and will be appreciated by high school students starting their research. Its organization enables readers to make quick, accurate comparisons between elements, while the comprehensive index pulls together research by various chemists.

A friend who is a scientist tossed me a copy, and I wanted my own, for continual reference. I deal with historic preservation of buildings, which have historic paints. The pigments are all inorganic. This book deepened my understanding of how the pigments which are compounds of those elements actually "work"
I'd like to send it back. but it's not worth the postage.
