    The Clockwork Universe is the story of a band of men who lived in a world of dirt and disease but pictured a universe that ran like a perfect machine. A meld of history and science, this book is a group portrait of some of the greatest minds who ever lived as they wrestled with natures most sweeping mysteries. The answers they uncovered still hold the key to how we understand the world.

    Overall

    The topic had promise but the book was rambling, disorganized and, well, just plain dull. The reader tried hard but his enthusiasm was strained. Oh well....
