I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Stuff Matters

Cover of Stuff Matters.

All my notes are lost to a hardware disaster, so the tl;dr is just: material pop-science, fun read, drags on in places. Nice without being great. The chapters on steel and chocolate were great, the one on concrete could have been great but instead was grating. All in all cool info, presented well, if you can stand the voice.

This book is part of the 2022 Backlog Incident.
