STUFF MATTERS Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World

by | Read by Michael Page

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Miodownik's charming and personal introduction to materials science is a great place to learn about a scientific discipline that is gaining importance in our changing world. Michael Page's clear English accent meshes perfectly with the London author's anecdotes of home and abroad. Miodownik describes the structural qualities of steel, concrete, chocolate, porcelain, and graphite, among others, teaching listeners a new way of thinking. Page's presentation is always easy to follow, and he's not intimidated by the occasional foray into technical topics like chemistry or quantum mechanics. Some listeners may be skeptical about another audiobook about ordinary things, but Miodownik and Page will swiftly win them over. F.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2014]
