Intensly Fascinating

by Rubycanary on Mar 17, 2009

Winchester's writing style is dynamic and pulls your eyes along the pages. I always intend to put his books down and do something useful, but can't. This book has great descriptions, not just of Needham's travels through China, but of his plush life in England as well.

Simon the Splendid

by Leonine on Jul 31, 2008

Simon Winchester has done it again. This is another of his beautifully written books on a wide variety of otherwise poorly-covered subjects. His writing style is addictive and his choice of subjects unique. I'm busy sourcing previous books which I have not yet read. I can't ay enough positive things about this particular volume except...GO AND BUY IT!
