Using the cosmos as a backdrop, Rodney Cotterill delivers a fascinating journey
of Nature's materials, from the atom to the living organism. This is a beautifully
illustrated, expanded account of the highly praised Cambridge Guide to the Material
World. The author seamlessly blends the physics, chemistry and biology of Nature,
portraying matter with all its elegance and flaws. Although the book is divided
into material types, the author connects concepts and pinpoints commonalities
between the inorganic and organic domains. It challenges the reader to question
our structured view of the world and whether this limits our scientific endeavour,
aptly demonstrated by the new chapter devoted exclusively to the mind. Through
the breadth of topics and engaging prose, this book will act as a superb introduction
to material science for students and those intrigued by the material world we
