This review is from: Science: A History 1543 - 2001 (Paperback)
I am still in the process of reading this so my star rating is provisional. However I wish to point out the "howler" on p66, which refers to the "inventor" of logarithms as John Napier of England. In fact John Napier was Scottish and carried out his work in Scotland. The author is probably confusing him with Henry Briggs who shortly after adapted logs to their modern format.
Nevertheless, a rattling good read.
