Not yet rated | write a review
One hundred lives and accounts of astonishing discoveries, encompassing all the categories of science-from cosmology to subatomic particles and the Internet.
By looking at one hundred scientists from the perspectives of both individual biography and scientific accomplishment, "Science" beautifully illustrates how simple questions and observations can lead to discoveries that radically alter life in the world and our comprehension not only of the natural world but of the cosmos, the body, and the mind as well. Science thereby presents a picture of scientific exploration and discovery that takes observation and method as well as imagination and sheer chance into account. By evaluating the discoveries that have changed life over the past 2,500 years, each two-page biography that makes up "Science" succeeds in assessing how and why each of the one hundred lives presented led to significant changes in our world.

Editorial Reviews

"Balchin has produced a compact, highly readable panorama of two and a half millennia of science, who created most of it, and how it has shaped our lives and culture." --"Science Books & Film"
