"This book is a celebration of plastics. From industrial beginnings in the nineteenth century, plastics have struggled through a hundred and twenty years of glory, failure, disrepute and suspicion on the slow road to public acceptance. Now, at last, one can positively say that plastics are more appreciated and enjoyed for what they are; that they make modern life richer, more comfortable and convenient, and also more fun."
