Chemistry Imagined 19 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Roald Hoffmann's "Chemistry Imagined" is not only a fascinating book about chemistry: it is also about live, society, history, art, creative thinking. Through several small tales, Hoffmann show to the readers an insightful view of how chemistry is the central science, its contributions to actual society life style, its importance in economy and live and, maybe the most important concept, its strong relationship with art. In some way, the creative process for science is the same that for art. The excellents illustrations made by Vivian Torrence, are the best landscape where the readers can "imagine the chemistry" behind the words of Hoffmann. A must for all the people with an interest in chemistry or science (or, as I said, art).
