Creative Chemistry

by Edwin E. Slosson

Edward Slosson's Creative Chemistry is an amazing read written in a humorous tongue in cheek style. This is a classic work of interest to anyone who ever wondered how did we get here. The focus is on industrial chemistry back when the automobile was new and airplanes were still made with wire and cloth. His commentary on life, religion, and technology is well thought out and still rings true even eighty years later.
