Salt and Superconductors...

2004-11-24 , ,

Recently finished two entirely unrelated books:

  • [Salt]( by Mark Kurlansky. The book is equal parts of political and
    social history and seasoned with period recipes and text on other bits of culinaria. A good read.
  • [Fear of Physics]( by Lawrence M. Krauss. Despite the fact that I paid little to no attention to physics in High School and college, I do have an interest in
    the subject matter so when I saw this at a used book shop I snapped it up. It is an entertaining and approachable layman’s introduction to topics such as general relativity, the expansion of the universe, subatomic particles and symmetry.
