I am tremendously excited to say that my book The Elements is now shipping as an amazing ebook for the Apple iPad. This is absolutely the most amazing, the most magical, and the most wonderful form in which the images and stories I have gathered over many years can be experienced.

"The iPad's splendor and power may be best shown by The Elements: A Visual Exploration. The $13.99 program is more electronic book than traditional app, but it's not like any e-book you've seen. The periodic table of elements comes to life when you touch your finger against any element. Handsome photographs of objects spin around so you can observe them from all vantage points."
--USA Today

"It's dazzling--it makes science feel like magic in your hands."
--Xeni Jardin for Boing Boing

"Best App of all Theodore Gray Wolfram Periodic table. Everything is animated and gorgeous. Alone worth iPad."
--Stephen Fry on Twitter

To purchase the ebook edition for iPad, you have to visit the Apple App store, either on your computer through this link, or by visiting the App Store on your iPad and searching for "The Elements" (look for the Xe icon).

One of the really neat features of the ebook is that all of the more than 500 objects you can see and spin can also be seen and spun in full stereo 3D. To see the 3D effect most people require the assistance of a pair of prism glasses. To order an inexpensive but nice pair, visit the iPad accessories order page.

Praise for hardcover edition of The Elements

"Theodore Gray is passionate about the periodic table, and his collection of elements rivals that of any museum's. With his characteristic wit and erudition, and above all with gorgeous photographs, he gives intriguing examples - ranging from commonplace to quirky - of each element's unique properties and uses. This glorious book is more than just a guide to the elements; it will fundamentally deepen your appreciation of the substances that make up our world."
-Oliver Sacks, author of Awakenings, Musicophillia, Uncle Tungsten and many others

"Theo Gray is an avid collector and photographer of elements, in addition to being a first-rate popular science writer. He has assembled an exquisite book on the elements, which will appeal to everybody with an interest in chemistry and science in general. The writing is clear, engaging and authoritative. I recommend it highly."
-Eric Scerri, author of The Periodic Table, Its Story and Its Significance

"This is literally the most colorful account of the chemical elements that I have ever read. It combines the key data about every element with lighthearted text that makes it a pleasure to read. Theodore Gray is to be congratulated on producing a masterpiece of popular science."
-John Emsley, author of Nature's Building Blocks: An A-Z Guide to the Elements

"This is the element book that in style and content outshines all element books! The photographs are fantastic in their mod layout on black. In the accompanying short texts, in a few choice words, Gray sketches utility, delves into history, and isn't afraid to make sharp comments about the world. My reaction: elemental delight."
-Roald Hoffmann, writer and winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry
