Book: Nature's Building Blocks

This books is more like an encyclopedia of elements. Because the elements are ordered in alphabetical order in this book, it is hard to see the similarities between elements. Each chapter(element) gives brief information about the element's history, discovery and use in industry, medicine or food etc.

There is a table in the end of the book that shows the discovery(or synthesis) of the elements in chronological order. I think it is really helpful.
