'I wish there had been such a book when I was a child. Bill Bynum's Little History of Science may be short but it tells a grand story: all of science lightly placed in ever-changing historical and philosophical contexts, but presented in a single arc from Empedocles to Tim Berners-Lee, Galen to Thomas Hunt Morgan, alchemy to insulin, the steam engine to the particle accelerator. It is a book I will be recommending for many years to come.'--Christopher Potter, author of "You Are Here: A Portable History of the Universe"--Christopher PotterRezension:
'Science is not a dry recitation of data; it's thousands of years of questions that people have posed about the universe. In "A Little History of Science," William Bynum ably distills this human saga into a delightfully clear tale. It may be little, but it manages to find room for galaxies, computers, chemistry, evolution and much more.'--Carl Zimmer, author of "A Planet of Viruses"--Carl Zimmer
