Editorial Reviews

Review

Given its clear and lucid discussion of potentially confusing concepts and tangled history, this will be a valuable addition to general science collections serving undergraduate and graduate programs in biology and allied life sciences.

Format: Hardcover
I skimmed this book for background information, and was impressed that Magner's did not interpret and judge ancient history on a modern science basis, but rather presented and evaluated each scientist as he dealt with the information he had, answering the questions presented to him by the culture in which he lived. Magner also did very well explaining scientific ideas to me -- a somewhat scientifically educated, but non-science major.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Highly readable, entertaining, and thorough. Be aware that there are errors in the Kindle edition that presumably occurred during OCR. For example "By 1920, Descartes had discovered a method of reasoning that he believed would be applicable to all the sciences." The year should read 1620. Thus, the reader (ironically) might have to double check the dates using Wikipedia.
