Classically written, yet very informative

Beautifully read with clarity and motivation. For all those who enjoys exploring science history, this book is a must. Particularly interesting when it can relate many of the famous names in other fields, hence laying out a comprehensive view of science in particular and human history in broad sense.

A flamboyant love letter

An undisguised love letter to the French national hero written by an author incapable of critical analysis and prone to superlative praise.
