A Good Read, 22 Dec 2010
A good read. The author has managed to comprehensively cover all the significant achievements in Science. Since the skeleton of the book is built on the discoveries that make Science what it is today, the author has to go through them chronologically. Since many of us know what the sequence of discoveries are, I initially worried that it might not be an exciting piece to read. But the author has cleverly clustered discoveries and leads one to another. Further a major chunk of the book is about the Scientists, their personal life and also about their environment. This makes it a good read.
