Hudson's The History of Chemistry promises to explain how chemistry was born and developed. It introduces the reader to a rather large number of notable chemists and explains their antics. It is all good and well, but unfortunately Hudson writes to a chemist, not to a general reader.

I'm sure this book is a good overview of the history of chemistry if you're a chemistry student or a chemist, but a general reader will bump into rather thick chemistry jargon that is not explained enough. My background in chemistry is the bit I learnt in high school and I had to skip rather large portions of the book because I didn't understand them. I was constantly asking "why?", "why is this important?", "what does this mean?" - but Hudson doesn't answer those questions.

So, if you're looking for popular history, you're looking in a wrong place. However, if one's interested in history of science and does have some knowledge of chemistry, this book will explain the general development of chemistry well enough. I'm sure there are better books about the topic, but I don't know them. (Review based on Finnish translation.)

The usual approach to explaining Chemistry as a discipline or branch of learning is to launch into the current "state of knowledge" presentation; i.e. the known physical laws, the mathematical reltionships, etc. Some of us think more along historical lines and the development of patterns. This book, by concenctrating on the historical development of the thought allows those of us who think this way to "ooze into" the subject, gain some understanding of the problems that were solved, understanding of the experiments that solved them and thus gives us a better understanding of the problems to be solved today.
