About the blog: What Things Are Made Of
AMERICA'S GLOBAL DEPENDENCY FOR NEARLY EVERYTHING

A slight change
I'll try to focus on updates, connections to things in the book that supplement and expand on it, and changes and news related to the topics in the book. It's a certainty that some aspects of the book will be out of date as soon as it is printed, because of the dramatic and speedy changes related to some materials. Rare earths come to mind: the demand, diverse uses, and global distribution of rare earths are in the news weekly if not daily. And there will likely be a bit more about oil and natural gas.
The blog and my web site will also become venues for interesting tables of information that I could not reasonably include in the book. And pictures!
Thanks for your interest. The book ought to be available for purchase by the end of March or possibly sooner. I'll post the link here instantly!
