"Robinson's brisk and engaging biography succeeds in rescuing Young from the "dilettante" charge. His thumbnail sketches of the scientific debates that his hero altered - whether on nautical astronomy, theories of light or the Rosetta Stone - have a clarity and focus Young himself would cheer." The Independent "This is a fascinating book" BBC History MagazineRezension:
'Thomas Young has long awaited a first-class biography, and Andrew Robinson has provided one. It is the best biography I have read for many years.' - Sir Patrick Moore
