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.

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.
