Review & Notes
Based on the best-selling hard cover edition of The Elements by Theodore Gray, Popular Science Magazine’s Gray Matter columnist. This interactive title explores the periodic table like never before. Read about the 118 elements and take a closer look at some of the unique objects made from these elements. For example, an early ribbon holder used to expose contact prints for Magnesium or a banana for Potassium. We liked the concept of this book, although it’s a very heavy download, it’s almost a must have experience for any iPad lover. Navigation is simple, you can go through the elements and objects all organized in order. The book is cramped with text and objects on every page, however, we wish that the objects would be a bit more detailed. For example it would be nice to learn what is a Ribbon Holder (Magnesium) or the purpose of a complex beryllium missile gyroscope (Beryllium).
