This title takes a look at the most common metal in the world. Rarely found in its pure form, this complex element is discussed in easy-to-understand language, as the author tells the story of iron, from its uses in ancient civilizations to how it's used today. Iron's place on the periodic table is then explained and its atomic structure and traits are broken down in a clear and concise form. Finally, its uses are explored, with emphasis on how it is found in many things around us.
