'A delightful story of an overlooked and underappreciated science and the scientists who made it. The writing never falters.' - Mark Buchanan, author of Nexus
'Haw's excellent descriptions ensure that concepts normally encountered only at degree level are just part of a riveting story'. -Chemistry World
'An accessible and racy account...there is something for everyone in this highly enjoyable little book.' - Nature
'It's a phenomenal book. It's slender and makes for an easy read, yet still it explains fundamental concepts well, in terms of the experiments that led to their discovery. There's a reason we make biology students take physics and chemistry, and it's because their essential ideas are all tightly interlinked and this book makes a good case that viewing molecules as inhabitants of that Middle World is a powerfully unifying perspective.'
PZ Myers, Pharyngula Blog (www.scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/)
