'If I saw further than others,' said Sir Issac Newton, 'it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants.'Quantum Leaps' introduces one hundred of these giants and examines their achievements: the men and women who, often in the face of extreme scepticism or worse, have striven and succeeded in pushing back the boundaries of human knowledge. Ranging across the spectrum of scientific endeavour, from the cosmology of Copernicus and Galileo, through the medical revolutions of Hippocrates and Galen, it includes the fields of physics, biology, chemistry and genetics. This is the story of the ideas that have shaped the world today, and the ideas that will shape the future. This is the Popular Reference edition of the fully-illustrated title 'Science', ISBN:9781782120469.
