Review:

Enthralling . . .

The futuristic materials will elicit gasps. Makes even the most everyday substance seem exciting * Sunday Times * Expert, deftly written, immensely enjoyable * Observer * Wonderful. Miodownik writes well enough to make even concrete sparkle * Financial Times * I stayed up all night reading this book. Miodownik writes with such knowledge, such enthusiasm, such a palpable love for his subject -- Oliver Sacks Superb storytelling . . . fascinating . . . a delightful book on a subject that is relatively rarely written about * Popular Science * This is a hugely enjoyable marriage of science and art * Independent on Sunday, 'Books of the Year' *
