SummaryAdd a Summary
This memoir is a demonstration of a deep, abiding love for metals and science from within a family deeply involved in both medical and industrial fields. Not fast-paced, I had to check this puppy out 3, yes THREE times to finish it. I let the first try expire, but Dr. Sacks' story and perspective through some impressive decades of discovery and development of metallurgic and elemental sciences was quite intriguing and would not leave me alone.
I have read \ listened to a couple of Stephen Hawking's writings and the elements and periodic table was a concept I had not fully appreciated until now.
Making Science, Chemistry, Metallurgy and even Medicine relatable is quite a skill. And the fact he survived his childhood physically, emotionally, intellectually or professionally makes us all fortunate.
