The stacked boxes in the Periodic Table of the Elements hold surprises. These elements tell a story that gives a hidden order to chemistry, geology, biology, and even history. Ben McFarland traces billions of years of evolution, beginning with math and ending with us. In this story, the periodic table helps us see new things. These events come alive in 40 original illustrations by print artist Gala Bent and medical illustrator Mary Anderson.-- book jacket
