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.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
