Book recommendation: The Alchemy of Air by Thomas Hager. Fascinating book about two German chemists who discovered how to extract nitrogen from the air, leading to the development of synthetic fertilizers and our ability to feed Earth’s seven billion people. It’s incredibly rare to find a history book that reads, literally, like a page-turner. This one does. Highly recommended.
