by Susan Wise Bauer | 11 May 2015
Category: Science Academic
Synopsis
'The Story of Science' guides us all to the original texts that have changed the way we think about our world, our cosmos and ourselves.

Each chapter recommends one or more classic books and provides an entertaining account of the discovery, a vivid sketch of the scientist-writer and a clear explanation of any technical issues. 'The Story of Science' reveals science to be a human pursuit - an essential, often deeply personal, sometimes flawed, frequently brilliant way of understanding the world.
