"The Elements: An Interactive Guide to the Building Blocks of our Universe" is an illustrated reference book to the elements that make up everything in our universe. General information about the properties, behaviour and occurrence of the elements, their main compounds and their principal uses is given. It is authoritative and accessible, with a sense of wonder about the way the material world works, thanks to the protons, neutrons and electrons that make up the atoms of the elements.
