Format: Paperback
I have enjoyed reading this book. Looking to the past gives insight. This book provides much information and discussion of times far past. As one who didn't appreciate history as a young student, this book has been very enlightening. I can recommend it to all students of science.

The book is very interesting because it goes in some detail about the origin of science, philosophy, and medicine started.

1 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Col William Russell on August 2, 2010
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.We eargerly await volume 3.
