4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent View Of One Man's Search For The Truth of Alchemy, 10 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Philosopher's Stone: A Quest for the Secrets of Alchemy (Paperback)
The story of one man's search for the Philosopher's Stone might sound like a dry read, but Peter Marshall makes entertaining reading of his own search through the highways and byways of alchemy from it's earliest beginnings until the present day. Not only entertaining, but enlightening in places too. What Peter has done saves others with a tyros interest in alchemy having to do the same, and in this regard he will save much precious time. The general reader will find the book a truly interesting read, but for the would be alchemist who doesn't know where to start, this book would make an excellent beginning to serious study of alchemy. To those who may think alchemy is no more than a fable which gave rise to modern chemistry, then a reading of this book might help to correct your view. There is more to alchemy than many of us think, and this is a good book to read to understand why.
