Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World (audiobook) by Mark Miodownik

What makes elastic stretchy? Why is glass see-through? Why does any material look and behave the way it does? These are the kinds of questions that renowned materials scientist Mark Miodownik continuously asks himself. Miodownik studies objects as ordinary as an envelope and as unexpected as concrete cloth, uncovering the fascinating secrets that hold together our physical world. In Stuff Matters, Miodownik explores the materials he encounters in a typical morning, from the foam in his sneakers to the metal in his razor. Filled with enthralling tales of the miracles of engineering that permeate our lives, Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World will make you see stuff in a completely new way.

Reviews

A thrilling account of the modern material world.” — Wall Street Journal

Miodownik, a materials scientist, explains the history and science behind things such as paper, glass, chocolate, and concrete with infectious enthusiasm.” — Scientific American

Stuff Matters is about hidden wonders, the astonishing properties of materials we think boring, banal, and unworthy of attention…It’s possible this science and these stories have been told elsewhere, but like the best chocolatiers, Miodownik gets the blend right.” — New York Times Book Review
