Product description


This book is a moving and eye-opening story of brilliance and bravery, and the fight against bigotry and closed-mindedness. --The Daily Mail

Puts fictional flesh on the bones of Kepler s life and times to enjoyable effect ...The Sky s Dark Labyrinth deserves a broad readership. --Nature

'Clark spins a fascinating, pell-mell tale of intrigue, ignorance and irrationality in a new Europe struggling to be born.' --The Globe and Mail

'Clark's exposition of the men in the midst of this time of upheaval leaves us wanting more. Luckily for us, this is just the first in a trilogy about the mysteries of astronomy and the important players in its discoveries' --Canadian Blogspot

About the Author

Journalist, author and broadcaster, Stuart Clark has devoted his career to presenting the dynamic world of astronomy to the general public. He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and a former Vice Chair of the Association of British Science Writers. In 2000, UK daily newspaper The Independent placed him alongside Stephen Hawking and the Astronomer Royal, Professor Sir Martin Rees, as one of the 'stars' of British astrophysics teaching. He divides most of his time between writing books and writing for the European Space Agency in his capacity as senior editor for space science, alongside producing features for the BBC and many publications. He has written seventeen books to date, selling more than 250,000 copies worldwide, which have been translated into twelve languages so far. He regularly lectures throughout the UK and, increasingly, across the world.
