The style was clear, that coming from a non native English speaker.
I am satisfied with the quality and content of the book.
As it's a present I've not read it, so I'm afraid I can't review the content of this book.
I was looking for a book that would tell me more about what each of the scientists had actually done but this was dealt with very, very superficially and the contents of the book concentrates largely on where they were born, the things they experienced in their lives with almost nothing on for example Galileo's laws of motion (just a mentioning). I don't feel like I know anything about what Kepler did other than the fact that he was a famous astrologer and the same can be said about Tyco Brahe and Galileo to be honest.
The book seems to be more interested in what they were like as people and nothing more, making it slightly gossipy. I did not receive much value from this book.
