    This was really, really fun to read. Useful stuff fills these pages, such as how many up and down quarks are in a proton versus a neutron. Perfect for the shelves of scientists, sorcerers, alchemists, and the curious.

    A lovely little book, although I suspect that it would be completely over my head if I didn't know much about science.
