A beautiful book with colour pictures throughout, this profiles all the most important scientists in history, from Euclid and the Greeks right up to the team that discovered DNA and the cosmology theories of Stephen Hawking. It explains their findings in language that I can understand and makes you realise that we would all still be living in the dark ages if it wasn't for the inquisitiveness of boffins like these.

A superb series of semi potted histories. Very useful for reference and interesting for some of the less renowned characters who are probably most undervalued.

I am a physicist and most of this excellent little book was familiar to me. Given to me as a present I found it easy to read and it could well be appreciated by a non-scientist who wants to get a quick grasp of the history of science up to the present day. The one disappointment for me was the omission of the Nobel Prize winning physicist, Richard Feynman
