Science: A History: 1534-2001 by John Gribbin
A great introduction to the topic which concentrates on the people and their lives and only gives a brief insight into the science itself.
Very easy to read and with many entertaining anecdotes and tales.
Gribbin is one of the easiest to read popular science writers, now he shows his hand as a great history writer as well.
I can see that I will be dipping in and out of this book for reference for many years to come.
A good read.
Four out of five stars.
