    Review quote
    Praise for "The Elements" "I don't know if this is the first coffee-table book paying lush photographic homage to the periodic table, but it is certainly the most gorgeous one I've seen." --John Tierney, "The New York Times ""The Elements is a loving reimagination of the classic table." --Wired "Gray's trademark dry wit and historical anecdotes bring even the most basic lumps to life." --"Popular Science""A great mix of science and art." --"Discover"
