Summary
"In this quirky and endlessly surprising book, scientist and award-winning YouTuber Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim tells us about the amazing science behind everyday things (like drinking water) and not-so-everyday things (like space travel and baby dinosaurs). Come along for the ride of a lifetime! Chemistry for Breakfast turns the ordinary into extraordinary, explaining everything from heat conduction to expiration dates, with a side of states-of-matter and biological clocks. With Mai as your guide, you'll find something fascinating in everything around you. (You'll also sound smarter at dinner parties.)"--Publisher's website.
