Shelves: general-non-fiction , What I learned from this book in no particular order 1. Phosphor was accidentally discovered when a scientist tried to turn human urine into gold. The similarity in color seemed to have been a factor in his conviction that this was possible. Like, duh. Im no scientist, but shouldnt it be obvious enough?

Bryson represents the sciences in this book, but it surely beats being bogged down in A Brief History of Time and their ilk.
