This review is from: Knocking On Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World (Hardcover)
I bought this book on the back on the 4 star rating. Unfortunately it turns out the 2 and 3 star reviews were spot on.
Lisa's mother may love the two page anecdote about the time she and Stephen Hawking received the keys to the city of Padua, but as an introduction to a discussion of Galileo it just doesn't work.
The theme of the book is fascinating, it's just a shame the writing doesn't do it justice.
