1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Hans Halberstadt on December 2, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
This isn't really a science lesson, it is a history lesson about scientific discoveries -- the story of scientists and a bit of context for the story of their work. The section on Galileo omits any detail about his development of the telescope -- how he designed and constructed it, how his telescope actually worked or what you could see with it -- while including considerable detail about the political problems that resulted from his published observations. The text is quite skimpy on any kind of details, including dates, so it isn't even very satisfying as a history least so far. I haven't finished it and this review is based on the first several sections of the book, about a third of the entire text, so maybe it will improve. Right now I am giving it a grade of C because its title is misleading since it is less about science and more about the history of several scientists.

I purchased this for my son and then when it arrived I decided to take a look I have found it so enjoyable that I haven't parted with it yet. Great Book and a Great Read.
