Summary: In this new and landmark history of modern science, author and trained astrophysicist John Gribbin recounts the development of science over the past five-hundred years--as seen specifically through the lives and achievements of individual scientists.

John Gribbin has written extensively before on scientific subjects such as the theory of everything, the existence of reality, and Schrödinger's cat.
