I was disappointed in the story. Less science - too much about his daily life - which was rather boring. However, the current thinking (at that time) was well described and shows what Copernicus was up against. But, overall, a real let-down from her earlier work - Longitude - which was excellent.

What did you like best about A More Perfect Heaven? What did you like least?
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.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Longitude was a masterpiece, but this sadly isn't. Sobel takes (it seems) every last scrap of archive material, and then tells a story largely about the religious politics of the day.
