What is it in chocolate that makes us feel good when we eat it? What's the molecule that turns men on? What's the secret of Coca-Cola? In this book, the author takes us on a guided tour through a rogue's gallery of molecules, some harmful, some pleasant, showing how they affect our lives.
John Emsley trained as a chemist, lectured in chemistry for 25 years in the University of London, and is now Science Writer in Residence at the Department of Chemistry at Cambridge. His 'Molecule of the Month' column for The Independent (19906) brought home to a wide readership how chemistry impinges on every aspect of our daily lives. In 1993 he received a Glaxo Award for science writing, and in 1994 he won the Chemical Industries Association's President's Award for science communication. His much-praised book The Consumer's Good Chemical Guide won the Rhone-Poulenc Science Book Prize in 1995.
