4.0 out of 5 stars Michael Faraday - A true genius. 12 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is simply written every child should read it. We owe this man so much, his modesty would not let himself be thought of as someone special. The world is a better place because of him. The author brought him back to life we should honour his memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars BETTER THAN IMAGINED! 19 Feb 2000
By Donald W West - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I ordered this book after hearing a radio drama, based on the book and presented in 15-minutes-a-day segments. I found it fascinating and inspiring, because I share Michael's love of science and a deep, living Christian faith. True to life in those times, with lots of interesting events which clearly illustrate the character of Faraday and those around him, the story is written to appeal to any age reader. As an electronics professional I did not find the writng at all childish, yet it is an easy read and contains some humor as well. One can feel Michael's pain as he faces the obstacles, applaud his persistence and humility, and share his exuberance as his dreams were finally realized. Mr. Ludwig's balanced treatment of Faraday's life provides insights into many aspects of the London of his time, as well as detailed descriptions of Michael's experiments. Many prominent scientists and their discoveries are mentioned in the book, and a two-page bibliography is included at the end. This short publication could be used as a starting point for researching a larger, more detailed treatise. Every high school student and adult should read this book. Thank you, Charles Ludwig and Amazon, for this appealing biography of Michael Farady.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faraday's Faith / Ludwig's Style 23 Nov 2004
By Wm B. Hackett III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A remarkable and memorable book! An A+. A 10. I ran across a copy at the Santa Barbara library's donated books for sale shelves and liked the "look" of the book. The size and the "heft", too. I bought it with other books mostly to support the library selling it, :-) but when I got home, I started to read it. It is an amazing read. Mr. Ludwig's style is surprising, different and intriguing. Mr. Ludwig's outlook on Michael Faraday's life and how and why he accomplished what he did, combined in that style, made the unprepossessing book quite a read! I read the whole thing right then and there and found it an amazing reading experience. The envisioning and portraying by Mr. Ludwig of Michael Faraday and Faraday's life, world, era, and beliefs is very, very, special. The overall "portrait" is unforgettable. I do not see this as just a child's or student's book. I see it as an inspiration. I plan to give copies to thoughtful friends and family. Read it. Judge for yourself and pass it on. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Faraday a model of living science and faith 19 Aug 2013
By Fred Voltmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An easy and compelling read for middle school age children to adults. Michael was a man who loved "thinking God's thoughts after him" as he pursued scientific truth for the benefit of humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Kids having trouble in school. 2 May 2011
By william tracy Smithson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Faraday beat all the odds.
Everyone including the king
came down on him.
Faraday showed them all.
I consider Faraday's work equal if not greater
than Ben Franklin's.
