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 will make you see stuff in a completely new way.
