This review is from: The Age of Wonder: How the Romantic Generation Discovered the Beauty and Terror of Science (Paperback)
This book has truly changed my life.
I never considered myself scientific until I was recommended to read this. Richard Holmes describes scientific exploration so clearly and beautifully, and so illuminates a few of the characters involved, some of whom are undeservedly little-known, that I have, over a few years, undertaken a science course, passed an exam and reached a point where I am enjoying reading about Quantum Theory.
