    First piece of advice, don t read this on a plane unless you want to be reminded that you re sat on top of tens of thousands of litres of a very flammable liquid called kerosene, the flammability of which, sits somewhere between petrol and diesel like petrol than dieselThis book is a wander through the different liquids he comes across on a mythical plane trip, coffee, liquid crystal,

    The topic is interesting, the angle flying in a plane, considering all the liquids one comes across or less stands up, but the fact is that this book isn t about the topic It s about the writer, Mark Miodownik He talks us through his attempts to emotionally connect with the woman sat next to him, his anxienties about flying, his personal alcohol consumption habits, his coffee drinking everyth

    I really enjoyed this book The science is pop than deep but that gives the author scope to entertain as well as to inform The entertainment comes largely from the author s using a long haul flight as the backbone to his story I also found the epilogue fascinating although the author seems to have latched onto a particular style of science writing I hope he will write again, and deeply, on advances

    I am not a reader of scientific books but reviews in the press persuaded me to buy it and I was not disappointed The book imparts knowledge in a format which is very easy to read and I would certainly buy another book by the same author

    This is a fascinating book explaining the properties of many different liquids It helps if you have a scientific engineering background but would still be of great interest to those of other disciplines My only criticism is that he did not explain enough about water, especially the property that it is at its densest at 4 deg C enabling fish to survive in frosty conditions.

    Brilliant and entertaining It s not often that you come across a science book which is a page turner, but this is one.Crammed full of fascinating facts, including why airplane tea tastes nothing like tea, woven into the author s musings during a transatlantic plane journey, this book puts the popular into science.

    What a cracking book A have also read his Stuff Matters which is just as good I can t put it down I will be gutted when I ve finished it but I can see that I will read it again some time Highly recommended if you want something for the general audience rather than really hard science

    The basic idea of the book is to detail the liquids Mark encounters on a flight to San Francisco There are a number of great stories, incuding everyday liquids like tea and coffee, which most people people will find really interesting but there is plenty there for full time nerds like me to get their teeth into The only downside for me was that it was over all too soon.
