4.0 out of 5 stars easy read - not too technical 21 May 2012
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Don't get me wrong. The book is certainly authoritative enough. But it does not require specialist background in chemistry or metallurgy. Instead, each chapter is typically readily understandable to someone with an undergraduate degree in the physical sciences or engineering.

The scope of all the chapters is broad. Covering the many aspects of how Al can corrode.

A casual read shows neat tidbits. There is the concern about Al being a harmful contaminant of food. Like how when Al foil is widely used to wrap food. The relevant chapter says unequivocally that no danger has ever been found. This extends to the suspicion that Al might contribute to Alzheimer's. Ditto conclusion, based on other studies. Whew!

We are also reminded that Al constitutes some 75% of most airplane's weight. Since 1930, Al has been the main metal for planes. Its strength and low density were crucial in arriving at this.

The book also has an appendix with a short glossary of Al related words in English, French and German. These were the main languages that technical papers on Al were written in during the 20th century.
