Plain & simple - you need to buy this book.
If you like to experiment & tinker or get goose bumps when you see things explode, or dangerous chemicals reacting then? this book is for you. Theodore Gray has truly outdone himself producing a large format book with colorful images of all those really cool experiments you've always wanted to do - but didn't want to risk doing.
The best book of its kind anywhere - we can only hope Theo is planning a follow-up. Are you listening Theo?
, Theodore Gray demonstrates scientific principles through extreme experiments. He launches toy rockets using energy released from Oreo cookies, ignites a phosphorus sun by suspending half a gram of white phosphorus in a globe filled with pure oxygen, whips up a batch of homemade nylon thread by linking the molecules of hexamethylenediamine and sebacoyl chloride, and gets the party started by adding 500 pounds of quicklime to water to create a homemade hot tub.
Every experiment is accompanied by full-color photographs that give you the feel that you have a front-row seat to the activity. Gray includes step-by-step instructions for nearly every experiment with references on how to acquire supplies for the experiments. Following all of the safety guidelines, readers can re-create many of the book's 55 experiments.
Grey's writing is fresh, humorous, and makes the science exciting and easy to understand. Mad Science is the perfect book for anyone fascinated by all things electrical, chemical, or explosive, and who loves a vicarious thrill.
