This book is AMAZING - and NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART, I might add. Seriously, if thoughts of dust mites, skeletal remains of creatures that live with us and on us drives you screaming into the night, then do NOT read this book. But I kind of look at it this way, they are there for a reason. And this book is fascinating!

And the photography is unbelievable as well! I seriously enjoyed this book. I mean, who knew that coffee literally moved because of the sound waves of our voices?!?!? See what I mean? AMAZING! I was glad that I was just browsing the day I found this book in the stacks of my local library. So, thank you, David Bodanis for this terrific book!
