The account in this inaugural volume of the series covers the period 1900 to 1960, but also outlines the principal developments in earlier centuries from which biochemistry emerged. Findings are considered in the light of present knowledge, rather than in a rigid historical framework.

While Tony Lawrence has authored numerous technical publications over the years in his career in the energy industry as a petrophysicist, this is his first book that annotates his amazing personal life experiences while traveling the world. Much like the path of a dragonfly, from one place to the next, this is the story of his life, an anthology set of books from his humble beginnings to one exciting adventure after another. Follow him from his home-sweet-home in Alabama to exotic places all over the world, such as the frozen Arctic and the highest peak in North America, to the Thousand Islands and Bali in the South Pacific, along with Europe, Africa and Asia along the way. See how he was able to integrate business with pleasure during his career in fulfilling many items on his "Bucket List.” The stories found inside are based on true life events that are often ironic and funny and which, occasionally, border on the "believe it or not" category.
Nestled in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is a feast for the eyes, with azure-blue lakes that shine brilliantly against the greenest slopes of the surrounding Alps. Its picturesque villages and chic towns are accessible via high-speed trains, which whisk travelers around at amazing speeds, though many opt to travel by longboat on some of the country's tranquil waterways. It is one of the world's most advanced industrialized nations, yet its towns and cities are incredibly clean. It also has the distinction of being one of the oldest democracies.

Denmark is primarily made up of one peninsula, Jutland (Jylland in Danish), and two islands, Sealand (SjA]lland) and Funen (Fyn). Sealand is the bigger of the two islands and also where Copenhagen, the capital and biggest city, is located. Denmark is the smallest of the three Scandinavian countries, with only 43,000 square km. There are over 400 islands in total but only 100 of them are inhabited. The country has 4.500 miles of coast line and you are never more than 30 miles from the sea, no matter where you are in the country. The biggest island in the world, Greenland, also belongs to Denmark, as do the Faroe Islands. If Greenland were to be included in the total area of the country, Denmark would be the biggest country in Europe by far and one of the biggest in the world. Denmark is perhaps the most popular of the three countries for campers. There are more than 500 campsites all over the country. The Danish word for inn is kro and if you see that word on a sign along the road, you have found the perfect combination of a place to stay and a place to eat. A long time ago, when people traveled by horse, it was decided that a kro should be placed every 20 km along all common roads in Denmark and, still today, you will find inns all over the country. They are as popular as ever for spending the night, grabbing a bite to eat, or both. Denmark is the number-one biking country of the three. Being a small and flat country, it's often the best way of getting around and biking is extremely popular for recreation. Denmark has over 6,200 miles of designated biking trails. These are just a few details covered in this comprehensive guide to all the activities in the country, plus where to stay and where to dine. This is an excerpt from our much larger guide to Scandinavia.
