5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely a delight!, 19 Aug. 2005
This review is from: The Shocking History of Phosphorus: A Biography of the Devil's Element (Paperback)
Here you have most of all what has made phosphorous a part of our history. From the destoyed life of the match making girls, via the bombing of Hamburg and industrial accidents, to some of all the need we have for phosphorous...
Well, yes; It could to have been written more about phosphorous in semiconductors, perhaps about silicate-like aluminium-phosphorous catalysts and potential problems with phosphorous in aluminium metal or in alloys.. What I missed was a bit more of the appendixes: With a small advanced appendix for the chemists/physicists that explained the phosphorous light of phospourous with approriate quantum mechanics and diagrams; the structure of this rare Hittorf's phosphorous etc. But the most important thing isn't to get The Perfect Book. The important thing is just to get books that are so well written and well researched as this book - at all. - A perfect book as a gift for somebody with a little interest in chemistry or history, or a treat for oneself.
