    I enjoyed all of this book The reserch and interest the author has in this type of science is clear and makes it a rewarding read The science of high pressures and the and the race to create the first man made diamonds was surprisingly exciting to read about The last few chapters on the future of diamonds in our everyday life is something that intrigues me and I know I m going to get lost in a Google search later on reading about this.

    A very cool book covering the history of diamond making and high temperature and pressure research It is well written and not to technical The interplay between the scientists is very interesting and some of the things they did to make diamonds are just nutty.

    Tracy Hall, who first made diamonds in a lab, recently died Now s a good time to re read this fascinating book which chronicles the race to be the first to manufacture diamonds It s no secret I think this would be one of the best films ever It s science and it s exciting Worth a read.
