This little book "is devoted to the small things in the physical world—especially to atoms, their structure and behavior," and the author tries too hard to put things in simple terms for the general reader. This he does in most interesting fashion, even though one is startled here and there by mathematical formulae obviously beyond the beginner but no doubt unavoidable. If anyone wishes to orient himself on the newer knowledge of atoms and molecules he will find this book interesting and profitable reading.
