            Strange Chemistry: The Stories Your Chemistry Teacher Wouldn't Tell You

            Strange Chemistry includes thorough, easy-to-understand explanations of over 100 incredible truths of real science... some real strange science. The bookcovers broad subjects that touch on everyday life, including the chemistry of poisons, illicit drugs, explosives, foods, common... household products, and radiation. Readers will find the information not only intriguing, but also absorbing and edgy. Unlike other science interest books, Strange Chemistry will focus on the darker, wilder side of chemistry, which, unfortunately, most authors and chemistry teachers tend to avoid. Breaking Bad may have started the trend, but Strange Chemistry is part of my ongoing passion to extend it, to bring chemistry out of the laboratory and into the real world, where we see how it affects us every day. Following an introductory chapter, coverage includes:Why Old Books Smell Good and Other Mysteries of Everyday Objects; The Dangers of "bath salts" and Other Drugs of Abuse; The Radioactive Banana; The Poisons in Everyday Things;Why Oil is Such a Big Part of Our Lives;Why Junior Mints Are Shiny and Other Weird Facts about Your Food;The Only Known Aphrodisiac; and Things that go Boom!
