welcome to the wonderful and very informative book to read online. This book is not boring academic style, but in a fun way, with humor tells of metals on the history of their discovery, physical and chemical properties, their role in our life. It reads like an adventure book, not popular science work. Fun illustrations by artist A. Collie make the reading even more interesting.
Start reading and you will not be able to tear yourself away! Maybe this book will begin your journey in the fascinating world of chemistry and metallurgy!
