Plastic Horizons

Nature volume 154, page 565 (04 November 1944) | Download Citation



THIS little book is worth careful examination, for it may represent the kind of thing with which the public is fed or doped in the days to come. In the 'blurb' on the dust cover it claims to take up where the newspaper articles and institutional advertising leave off. It is a back-to-earth job in which curiosity and interest in plastics will be supplanted by actual working knowledge. To use the author's favourite expression it may, and then again it may not.
