"Why is glass see-through? What makes elastic stretchy? Why does a paperclip bend? Why does any material look and behave the way it does?With clarity and humor, world-leading materials scientist Mark Miodownik answers all the questions you've ever had about your pens, spoons, and razor blades, while also introducing a whole world full of materials you've never even heard of: the diamond five times the size of Earth; concrete cloth that can be molded into any shape; and graphene, the thinnest, strongest, stiffest material in existence--only a single atom thick.Stuff Matters tells enthralling stories that explain the science and history of materials. From the teacup to the jet engine, the silicon chip to the paper clip, the plastic in our appliances to the elastic in our underpants, Miodownik reveals the miracles of engineering that permeate our lives. As engaging as it is incisive, Stuff Matters will make you see the materials that surround you with new eyes"--… (mere)

Fascinating to listen to. Though I'd probably get way more out of reading it, this was sufficient for my interest level. I quite enjoyed paper, as I'm sure many readers did. ( )

What a wonderful way to bring back memories of chemistry and physics. This has to be one of the most interesting and fun contexts for teaching/learning science - placing the elements into everyday objects. ( )

Mark Miodownik examines the materials that surround us, including chocolate, concrete, foam, glass, graphite, implants, paper, plastic, porcelain, and steel. The author dives deep into the scientific properties and history of each. He also relates his own experiences with these substances. I have to admit being surprised at the inclusion of implants and chocolate, as they seem a bit different than the others (but still interesting). There is an unusual “play” in the middle, involving plastics, which did not quite work as well as the other chapters, but I guess he was going for creativity. It is written in a lively manner, accessible, and entertaining manner. ( )

This book is a classroom classic. I could use this with my younger students for curiosity questions. Kids are always wondering how the world works, well this book gives you a quick rundown about how things work around you! Some of these things include how we get chocolate, how glass is made, and even things we use daily! ( )
  RebeccaPlante | Nov 16, 2022 |
To the extent that Materials Science is one of the most misunderstood and underrated aspects of our modern world, and that Miodownik is a decent writer, then this book is absolutely fine. That said, it isn't particularly deep in either philosophy, or in any specifics of the science or materials it discusses. It moves along pleasantly enough, though. ( )

If an atom were the size of an athletics stadium, the nucleus would be the size of a pea at its center, and the electrons would be the size of grains of sand in the surrounding stands.
You might think it not credible that a material as soft as leather can sharpen steel, and you would be right. It is the fine ceramic powder that is impregnated in the leather strop that does the sharpening.
