Joe Schwarcz really does tell it like it is in 67 short, entertaining, and informative pieces about chemistry in everyday life. He gives us the latest about homeopathy and alternative medicine. He explores the science behind Alice's strange adventures in Wonderland, Rumpole's deadly cheese souffle, and Casanova's experiments with Spanish Fly'; he investigates the nefarious chemistry of the KGB, the colours of urine, and the mysteries of baldness. Even Houdini makes a magical appearance. Finally, discover the amazing links between radar, hula hoops, and playful pigs!'
