Summary
Field takes readers on a decades-long journey through the history of things that go boom. From the early days of black powder to today's modern plastic explosives, he details now just the who, when, and why, but also the how. He explains how explosives work on a molecular scale, and gives readers a basic understanding of the chemistry that makes them possible
