3.0 out of 5 stars 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.

Recommended. ***

2.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable, 22 Dec 2010
This review is from: Da Vinci Notebooks (Paperback)
It is an OK book. Idea is to introduce the readers about Vinci and his works. But seems like the author was in an hurry to publish. A very shallow outlook. Not enough detail. The book itself is small in size that it is difficult to appreciate the images. A good idea but badly worked out! There is one advantage though, can be read in few hours.
