Oh good! I was beginning to think this was a solo attempt on my part. I agree about the lack of indepth references and linkages.
It definitely won't be a solo attempt once I finally get my book ...!! :(

Definitely not a solo attempt. It's also weird but the short chapters and lack of referencing that make this pop science book easy to read are also what keeps me from setting time aside for it.
It's definitely interesting, tho, even if I'm not sure that the author is fulfilling her premise to show how science has influenced history (rather than showing the history of science). I think this could have done with a little bit more elaboration on the author's part.

Pretty much. I think I went all gooey because it had molecular diagrams, and I've yet to come across any other non-textbook book that has them.

The diagrams are lovely. :)
