Synopsis: All natural change is subject to one law. It's the second law of thermodynamics. In this volume, the acclaimed chemist and science writer P. W. Atkins shows how this single, simple principle of energy transformation accounts for all natural change. Moving from the steam engine to the nuclear age, the narrative is full of vivid examples, ideas, and images--but virtually no mathematics.

About the Author: P. W. Atkins, a lecturer in physical chemistry at Oxford University, is the author of numerous books, including Creation Revisited.
