by Theodore Gray
The ultimate Theodore Gray collection, Theodore Gray’s Completely Mad Science collects every one of Gray’s dramatic, visually spectacular, and enlightening scientific experiments into one complete volume.
Bestselling author Theodore Gray has spent more than a decade dreaming up, executing, photographing, and writing about extreme scientific experiments, which he then published between 2009 and 2014 in his monthly Popular Science column “Gray Matter.”
Previously published in book form by Black Dog in two separate volumes (Mad Science and Mad Science 2), these experiments, plus an additional 5, are available now in one complete book.
Completely Mad Science is 432 pages of dazzling chemical demonstrations, illustrated in spectacular full-color photographs. Experiments include: Casting a model fish out of mercury (demonstrating how this element behaves very differently depending upon temperature); the famous Flaming Bacon Lance that can cut through steel (demonstrating the amount of energy contained in fatty foods like bacon); creating nylon thread out of pure liquid by combining molecules of hexamethylenediamine and sebacoyl chloride; making homemade ice cream using a fire extinguisher and a pillow case; powering your iPhone using 150 pennies and an apple, and many, many more.
The James Fitzgerald Agency has been creating, editing, nurturing, selling and maintaining books for over a decade. The books are slivers of the culture we all engage and dip in and out of be it in the realm of magic, the West, motorcycle mania, modern music, chemistry or just plain old-fashion good stories. Books after all the rhetoric has been uttered and digested are simply intellectual properties put on paper, made public and sold. They are large kernels of cohesive ideas that educate, entertain and last forever.
Publishing in the 21st Century is a fast moving, ever-changing target that is redefining itself almost daily. As agents we are prepared for the inevitability of diversification, we are locked and loaded and ready to meet these new innovations, forms and procedures, these constant challenges of getting the word out every single day.
