This book will certainly enhance his reputation. --Sir Patrick Moore, BBC Sky at Night.
'If you enjoy historical novels then this would be a good and unusual choice (even if you don't have a particular interest in science) focusing as it does as much on ideas as on the fascinating and flawed individuals who grappled with those ideas.' --New Books Mag
'I can't recommend The Sky's Dark Labyrinth trilogy highly enough' --Kathy Stevenson, Daily Mail
