Tim James - Science Selected as one of the best books of 2018 by the Daily Mail
Tim James is an expert in science communication, making seemingly complex topics such as the periodic table and quantum mechanics entertaining for all ages. He is the author of Elemental: How the Periodic Table Can Now Explain (Nearly) Everything, a YouTuber, a public lecturer ( Institute of Physics) and an inventor — having discovered a chemical that converts wood into a liquid biofuel.
Raised by missionaries in Nigeria, Tim fell in love with science at the age of 15, when he ran science revision sessions for his classmates. After completing his degree, he turned down several PhD opportunities, preferring instead to go straight into the classroom and teach.
“a hugely entertaining tour of the periodic table and the 118 elements that are the basic building blocks of everything.” - Daily Mail
Tim's next book, Fundamental: How Quantum Mechanics Explains Everything Ever (apart from gravity) will be published by Robinson, Little, Brown in 2019.
