Format: Paperback
No, you don't need to be a rocket scientist to read this fascinating history of science. Too often most people think science just - well - happened. It didn't, of course, and Deming goes to great pains to shows its history from its inception by the Greeks. No, not the Egyptians. If you want a full explanation, get this fascinating book. Highly recommended.

I checked the bound edition of this out of the library and LOVED it. Loved it so much in fact, and wanted to make so many notes in it, that I had to buy my own copy. I was so glad when I saw that the Kindle was over 50% off the regular price. Now I can get all three in the series for the cost of little more than 1.5 of them.

Now, this is a college entry textbook, so know that going in, but if you're interested in the history of science, then treat yourself and get this.

This first volume is surprising because it is more than a study of Science and Technology in history. It is a much more wide-ranging intellectual history of the world. His ability to distill complex philosophical ideas is excellent. He presents the complex philosophical systems of Plato and Aristotle with clarity. Aristotle especially is well-treated as a true man of science. Deming presents scientific methodological issues in context and well-connected to earlier and later thinkers. A superb history.
