this book was an easy to read account of the authors search for answers as to why materials break! along the way you are enlightened to the mechanics of material science (for beginners), and learn some extremely good facts about embrittlement and the laws of thermodynamics!
this book was well written and well worth the time invested in reading it.

This is an account Mark's journey to understand the world, rather than what scientists have found.

An enjoyable read none the less, and there is some coverage of "Why things of break" along the way.

For someone who has worked in industry for 25 years, witout a degree of any kind, I found this book illuminating and easy to read. Things just flow, concepts are broken down into laymans terms and pictures of atoms seem to fly around my head.

I read this as a forty something, and felt my Physics A-level memories being stirred. Fascinating read, did help that i was a least conversant with Physics.
As someone that doesnt read much, i enjoyed it.
