Beginning with clear, concise, and entertaining descriptions of the important discoveries that form the basis of our scientific knowledge - Newtonian mechanics, Einstein's theory of relativity, evolution, and germ theory, to name a few - the book goes on to tell scientific stories that are lost between the pages.
