Teaser Tuesday Three

After a week's hiatus (I got a new teaching job!) we return.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly blog hop I got from The Bathroom Monologues by the fabulously talented John Wiswell.

A break from fiction, we have Richard Feynman's "Six Easy Pieces".

"The science which is perhaps most deeply affected by physics is chemistry. Historically, the early days of chemistry dealt almost entirely with what we now call inorganic chemistry, the chemistry of substances which are not associated with living things."

I love the history of science, and classic scientific works. Recently I just finished Asimov's three volume "Understanding Physics". This will be a comparison to that text in some ways. You can also watch Feynman's full hour lectures on YouTube.

Everyone is welcome to Teaser Tuesday. The rules are as simple as:

• Grab your current book
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• Avoid spoilers! Don't give too much away or you'll ruin it for the very people you're suggesting it to.
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers
