The Genie in the Bottle : Did you know that bug juice can be used to color ice cream? Or that willow bark will cure a headache? In The Genie in the Bottle, popular science writer Joe Schwarcz lets us in on these and other fun and fascinating secrets from the chemistry of everyday life. Blending quirky chemistry with engaging tales from the history of science, Schwarcz offers a different twist on licorice, hot leads on travel to the dark side of the sun, and the straight skinny on chocolate research, ginko biloba, and blueberries. Read about the ups of helium and the downs of drain cleaners, how to control stinky feet and bend spoons (and minds!). Find out how spies used secret links, and how acetone changed the course of history. "Dr. Joe" also solves the mystery of exploding shrimp and, finally, lets us in on the secret of the genie in the bottle.
