In this quirky and endlessly surprising book, a quick-witted chemist reveals the amazing science behind everyday things (like coffee, breakfast, and trips to the dentist) and not-so-everyday things (like space travel and baby dinosaurs). Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim uses the same relatable style that makes her a popular YouTuber to explain scientific concepts everyone should know.

Over the course of a single day, Nguyen-Kim shows us that science is everywhere; we just have to look for it. In the morning, her partner’s much-too-loud alarm prompts a deep dive into biological clocks and fight-or-flight responses, followed by a coffee with a side of heat conduction and states of matter. Nguyen-Kim continues with explanations of cell phone technology, food preservation, body odor, the effects of alcohol, and the science behind the expression “love drunk.” Filled with charming illustrations and Nguyen-Kim’s personal anecdotes, Chemistry for Breakfast turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.
