Format: Paperback
Just finished this book. It was a great read. I've read other geology and science history books and this one stands out for its humor, its collection of obscure tales, and its wide coverage (from ancient times to this year). The science is solid. I teach high school science, took geology courses in college, and I found the book very readable and not technical. I learned a lot about how science discoveries work, and a lot about the earth. The way Miksha tells the story with lots of very personable biographies is sometimes funny, sometimes informative, sometimes inspirational. It's a good book.

Format: Paperback
This is quite an amazing book. The focus is on the earth and geology, but it leads the reader through the history of science and how science has been beaten up by religion and rigid thinking. It helps us see that science is always changing, new ideas replace old ones, and nothing is ever settled. At one point in the book, a scientist makes a great discovery and a friend asks him, "How can you make an even greater name for yourself?" The scientist answers, "I don't know, prove I was wrong, I guess." This is a must read book for anyone interested in how science develops.
