Beschreibung

For fans of How Stuff Works and Myth Busters, Chemistry for Breakfast breaks down the day-to-day objects to provide insights into science and scientists. A practical, humorous, informative, and above all, relatable, approach to how science impacts our everyday lives, from our morning alarm clocks and coffee to Star Wars and the vacuum of space, Chemistry for Breakfast has something for everyone. Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim is a chemist and award-winning science journalist, who has made it her mission to "infect" people with the science of their everyday lives. A popular TV presenter and Youtuber, Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim's Youtube channel, maiLab, has over 900k subscribers. Chemistry for Breakfast employs the same relatable and easy-to-understand scientific explanations that make maiLab so successful and popular with viewers. Mai's writing is funny, modern, and open about how science impacts everything from her romantic relationships to her breakfast. If Carrie Bradshaw were a chemist, she'd love this book. Explains complex chemistry and science in relatable terms and concepts, making it simple for the everyday reader to relate to and understand.

Rezension:

Finalist for the 2022 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books-Young Adult Science Book

"This book shows that chemistry is not just relevant to life; it's really, really interesting. Its is an insider's look into scientists' minds, social interactions, and laboratories that will change the way that readers view their lives, surroundings, and bodies ... and gives advice that you didn't know you needed. Chemistry for Breakfast is an engaging, accessible, and downright fun science book."
-Foreword Reviews, STARRED review

"With its wealth of examples taken from everyday life, from soap to toothpaste, Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim's charming romp through the essence of chemistry may just inspire a new generation of chemists."
-Larry Gonick, author of The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry

"In Chemistry for Breakfast, Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim uses her passion for science to give us a lighthearted and enjoyable look into the fascinating discoveries hidden in the things we encounter every day."
-Dr. Steven Farmer, author of Strange Chemistry: The Stories Your Chemistry Teacher Wouldn't Tell You

"It is hard to resist being swept up in Mai's enthusiasm and begin to see the world-as she does-as a wonder of interacting chemical processes."
-Dr. Paul May, professor at the University of Bristol, editor of the website Molecule of the Month, and co-author of Molecules that Amaze Us

"Chemistry for Breakfast bristles with imaginative ideas, and its fresh style will commend it to many readers, particularly those who would not usually read a 'chemistry book'."
-Dr. Simon Cotton, Honorary Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Birmingham

"As readers journey through revelations about chemicals found in the likes of toothpaste, hamburgers, the brain and even human flatus, they may hardly notice that along the way they have been painlessly educated in the nuances of chemical bonding. Chemistry for Breakfast is a wonderful remedy for chemophobia, a condition that seems to be infectious and is much in need of treatment."
-Joe Schwarcz, Chemistry Professor and Director, McGill Office for Science and Society

"Blended with physics, biology and medicine, Mai's book Chemistry for Breakfast is a magical tour of the fundamentals of chemistry and its impact on science and society."
-K.C. Nicolaou, PhD, Harry C. and Olga K. Wiess Professor of Chemistry at Rice University and CPRIT Scholar in Cancer Research

"Chemistry for Breakfast bristles with imaginative ideas, and its fresh style will commend it to many readers, particularly those who would not usually read a 'chemistry book'."
