4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Bock, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good book, the matter is well presented and the scientific level is very good, althought it does not go into very much detail from the mechanical point of view.

Not purticularly long but very interesting.

Would definitely recommend to Architects and Engineers.


The Mechanical Sciences in Antiquity
The Mechanical Sciences in Antiquity
by Massimo Corradi
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.54

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Book, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought and returned straight away.

Layout is very poor, seems like it was put together by an amateur. It claims to be 70 pages but if you take out pictures, pages with out-of-context info about scientists and empty pages the text is no more than 20-25 pages tops. It is basically a long article.

Contents are extremely poor. The book is not about the mechanical sciences in antiquity as the title claims, it rather gives a religious/mistic view which is far from a scientific approach and has definitely nothing to do with mechanics.

Overall a waste of money, would definitely not recommend.
