Sintesi dell'editore

In the 17th and 18th centuries, scientists went beyond Aristotle's four elements (Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water) to catalogue nature's many basic elements. New materials and potions stimulated visions of wealth and healing; soon, new theories of atomic structure and combustion laid the foundation for practical applications that blossomed into the Industrial Revolution.

The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history's most successful journeys, 4,000 years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom or accepted practices; this is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. Aristotle, Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, and many others are featured.

Very informative and very short.

I actually enjoyed this audiobook. It was very informative and kept my attention throughout the entire listen. The information is presented in a very factual format and I felt that there was no bias in any part of the work. I would suggest anyone who is entering the world of chemistry, or would like to further their understanding, should listen to this book.

great overview of the history of modern chemistry

This was a great overview. Enjoyed the performance and appreciated the references to modern historians and their perspectives.

Scattered, story jumped around and the accents were AWFUL

I was looking forward to this short listen, but wow what it a disappointment. First off, the accents for the quoted scientists and philosophers were TERRIBLE (moved from English, to Southern, to Irish)
The timeline weirdly focused on seemingly random areas in the growth of chemistry. Part vague summary, part overly detailed. Glad I didn’t pay money for this.

fun to learn facts.

reminded me of taking Chemistry history in high school and now retaking the class to hear it better as an adult.
