It is fascinating to read how the people of so many centuries ago managed to comprehend the mechanics of our universe by simple thought and observation. I wonder where those people are today. I chose the book because I love the history of science and biographies of great scientists. I was not disappointed on either account.

I bought this book with the idea on getting a brief but detailed narration on Galileo's life. And that is what I got, it is an excellent overview and will prompt you to go out and find more on the subject.
The style was clear, that coming from a non native English speaker.
I am satisfied with the quality and content of the book.

I am a novice amateur astronomer and really found that this book put quite a good deal of the subject in context for me - that is before Einstein and the late 19th century scientists, not to mention Higgs and Hawkings (hope I've spelt his name correctly.

Like many works of this vintage, it has the old fashioned mileu that is not to everyone's taste. I find it refreshing when compared to modern prose and it doesn't obscure the subject which is thoroughly dealt with here.
