Review of The Chemistry of Fireworks by Michael S. Russell

Review of The Chemistry of Fireworks
Michael S. Russell

Reveiw by Barry Sturman

At first glance, this 117-page paperback book[1] looks very promising. According to the publisher’s description, the book “is aimed at students with ‘A’ level qualifications or equivalent. The style is concise and easy to understand, and the theory of fireworks is discussed in terms of well-known scientific concepts wherever possible. It will also be a useful source of reference for anyone studying pyrotechnics as applied to fireworks.”[1a] The author of the work, Michael S. Russell, is a research chemist with a background in military and marine pyrotechnics, and he has worked as a firework display operator. He should be well qualified to write on this subject.
