Caesar’s Last Breath: Decoding the Secrets of the Air Around Us
by Sam Kean; audiobook read by Ben Sullivan (Hachette Audio, 2017)
Kean not only makes science accessible but also proves an able guide through history more generally, grounding his subject matter in human interest (and absurdity). The story of gasses—and how they have shaped human development—is genuinely fascinating. Audiobook reading recommended.
