Customer Review

on 21 September 2005
Clearly there's a lot people don't know about Hooke or this book would never have been written. A lot is made of his bad character, but what seems to come out is his pride in his ability, and the many friends he did make who stayed with him throughout his life.
It's an interesting story and the book holds your interest, although the timelines do jump about a bit which can be confusing. There's not a lot of science in it, and it focusses much more on Hooke the person. There's some interesting details on life in 17th century London too.
Overall, a good read.
