This review is from: The Scientific Revolution: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
If you have any interest in science, then this short little book should be in your collection. Professor Principe is an extremely knowledgable expert on the history of science and has a very easy-to-read style that is highly educational. His enthusiasm for the subject matter comes across exceptionally well and I found page after page of interesting background information to key scientific ideas. Science can be a bit dry sometimes when all you learn is theory and equations, this book helps to redress the balance by adding the human touch. I really can't praise it enough.
