This is the perfect book for adults who are jealous when they see kids having fun with scientific experiments that glow, mutate and explode. Theodore Gray, bestselling author of the wonderful Elements and Molecules, has created a playbook for extreme at-home scientists. There are step-by-step, full-colour instructions for turning a jar into a light bulb, making a transparent rocket and casting solid shapes in mercury (although some include the Don’t Try This At Home warning).
A great gift for the curious of mind.
