The ordinary becomes extraordinary in this scientific examination of the materials that surround us. Why is glass see-through? What makes elastic stretchy? Why does any material look and behave the way it does? These are the sorts of questions that renowned materials scientist Mark Miodownik constantly asks himself. Miodownik studies objects as ordinary as an envelope and as unexpected as concrete cloth, uncovering the fascinating secrets that hold together our physical world. In "Stuff Matters," Miodownik explores the materials he encounters in a typical morning, from the steel in his razor to the foam in his sneakers. Full of enthralling tales of the miracles of engineering that permeate our lives, "Stuff Matters "will make you see stuff in a whole new way. 

  • A thrilling account of the modern material world. --Wall Street Journal
