Molecules With Silly or Unusual Names

How can't you like a book with details of the chemical structure and properties of Arsole, Moronic Acid, Titanic Chloride or...hell, why not, Bastadin.

It's smallish, cheapish, funny, and actually very informative. Perfect as a present for the chemist (or even better, wannabe chemist) in your life, and even gives an insight into some of the historical and linguistic roots behind the usually obscure molecules involved. Geologists don't get left out either...
