Great read. My son read it for science class and enjoyed it so much I read it afterward. So many little known facts that led to big discoveries.

A very interesting read
A great read for those that love science and history, and how one has impacted the other. Through the use of examples from history, the author demonstrates how we must learn from history and science of the past in order to not repeat those same mistakes in the future.
