    The founder of modern science and the embodiment of the conflict between science and faith, Galileo remains the most fascinating figure of his age. In this biography, James Reston Jr. provides a lively, vivid portrait of Galileo, taking the listener to the heart of this passionate, embattled, arrogant, and brilliant man.

    Amazon Customer says: "Lifesavr"
    "Juvenile science"
    Overall

    The author describes Galileo's relationship to the external world, but fails to discuss the reasoning behind his support for the Copernican hypothesis. For example tides are mentioned in relation to their appearance, but there is no discussion of their relevance to the issues under discussion.
    The audio delivery is simply disgraceful, with long distracting pauses. Audible should consider discontinuing this audiobook.
