A fascinating read,

This review is from: The Secrets of Alchemy (Synthesis) (Hardcover)
An interesting account of the history of alchemy. I was hoping for a little more on the early, graeco-roman period, but the lack of material is historical, and not the author's fault. He makes an interesting case for the theories of some of the Arabic alchemists to be considered as proto-scientific. This is not a book for New Age types, but for those with a rational interest in the subject.
