    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.
