While not up to the caliber of Cabinet of Curiousities or Brimstone this is a very entertaining book. The inclusion of NYC history added to the story.
The narrator does a very good job.
I found this book to be little more than a few comments about the lives of these great people with little or no real insight into their amazing accomplishments. This is the same material one might find in an encyclopedia.
The reader was almost monotone which leads me to believe he didn't understand what he was reading.
Try Gibbons "The Scientists." MUCH better book.
