The book contains several points in history... but it just did not hold my interest.
Just an avid reader that is dumbfounded that I had not exploited my accumulating "credits" earlier as I am able to clear MANY more texts.
This book is not just for the science enthusiast. It is also for anyone interested in the untold history of its multiple disciplines as well. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Somewhat easy to follow, try to keep pace...there is a lot to cover:)
I'm a scientist and an all around geek so I cover a lot of literature. This is hands down the most fun I've ever had reading about science and the quirky scientists that came before us. Scientific facts aside, this book is full of humor, history, and somehow humanity.
Good compendium of several topics. Well structured, concise and easy to go through. Deep enough to point to other references.
Best audiobook I've come across--wonderful narration and informative book! Highly recommended for anyone who has ever been curious about the world around us.
Easy to understand and always interesting. Lots of facts that will help in future discussions. Great overviews I shared with my kids.
