In her graceful, compelling style, Dava Sobel chronicles the history of the Copernican Revolution, relating the story of astronomy from Aristotle to the Middle Ages. In its midst will be her play, And the Sun Stood Still, imagining the dialogue that would have transpired between Rheticus and Copernicus in their months together. As she achieved with her best sellers Longitude and Galileo's Daughter, Sobel expands the bounds of science writing, giving us an unforgettable portrait of scientific achievement.

Too much about Copernicus' daily life
Interesting but Not Perfect
I enjoyed the placing of the Copernicus story in context in history but would have preferred more discussion of the science. My copy also had some weird editing with some sentences repeated randomly throughout the book. The narrator was very good. All in all an interesting book.
