Starting with the landmark publications of Vesalius and Copernicus, Gribbin creates a highly readable narrative from his judicious accounts of scientific breakthroughs and the personalities involved in them. The reader is left enlightened and amazed at the sheer momentum of discovery.
John Gribbin trained as an astrophysicist at Cambridge University and is currently visiting Fellow in astronomy at the University of Sussex. He is one of the finest writers of popular science.
"A spectacularly fine and successful work of its kind. Its is based on vast learning. It communicates scientific problems and investigations with command, clarity, expertise, and unflagging energy. Certain narrative passages are quite brilliant. So many scientists here come alive."
- Roy Porter
