I read Napoleon's Buttons by Penny Le Couteur on June 16, 2019

This book titled “Napoleon’s Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History” is about the sciene and history of important molecules like caffeine, soap, DDT, dyes. This history is thorough and well-researched. Most importantly though, the authors do not shy away from presenting actual chemical diagrams which I really enjoyed because it shows how some of the chemicals are so simple (chlorofluorocarbons) while others can be extremly complex.
