Review

Neal Stephenson

Author of "Quicksilver"

Carl Zimmer clarifies and illuminates the story of a fascinating thinker who too often gets lost among the crowd of colorful geniuses who made up the early Royal Society. By focusing on a single player in the vast spectacle that was the scientific revolution, and telling his story so well, Zimmer gives us insights into the age when alchemy, and even older systems of thought, gave way to modern science. But this is not only a history book, for readers with an interest in consciousness and the brain will find much here that applies to research going on today.



"A thumping good read."

-- Timothy Ferris, author of "The Whole Shebang" and "Coming of Age in the Milky Way"



"A thumping good read."
-- Timothy Ferris, author of "The Whole Shebang" and "Coming of Age in the Milky Way"

"Carl Zimmer's illuminating book charts a fascinating chapter in the soul's journey."
-- The New York Times Book Review

"Describes a kind of second Copernican revolution -- one inside the body. Thrilling."
-- Ross King, Los Angeles Times

"This page-turner is a tribute to the heretical thinkers who decoded nature by relying on direct observation rather than received opinion."
-- Wired

"A thumping good read."
-- Timothy Ferris, author of The Whole Shebang and Coming of Age in the Milky Way --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
