A Brief History of Science
A beautiful book.
A romp through science and history.
I particularly liked the experiment to demonstrate the wave nature of light using just your fingers.
My copy is ten years old and doesn't this just demonstrate how far we have come i.e. the internet, dark matter and dark energy for starters.
Occasional strange graphics for the pedant to spot e.g. a model of mars being squeezed and a diagram labelled as a bar code which consists of a bar with stripes on !
Overall very good fun.
Three and a half stars out of five.
