TECHNO-MATTER: THE MATERIALS BEHIND THE MARVELS by Fred Bortz (Twenty-first Century Books, Millbrook Press, 2001, ages 11-up) Full color, reinforced library binding, ISBN#0761314695.
Modern technology depends on materials that nature can't make but humans can. Materials Science and its practical cousin, Materials Engineering, may be the Rodney Dangerfield of technology -- they do not receive the respect they so richly deserve. After reading this book, you'll never look at the materials around you in the same way.
