In ancient times, people believed that the world was made of earth, air, fire, and water, yet the truth is more complex and far more fascinating. As this profusely illustrated layman's guide establishes, the more than 100 elements are nothing less than the building blocks of the universe. Among the figures introduced here are Democritus, who presupposed the existence of atoms, and Siberia's Dmitri Mendeleev, who constructed a table of 60 elements and correctly intuited that there were many more. In the back of the book are capsule biographies of a host of scientists, plus a fold-out poster of the Periodic Table.
