while the book stumbles a bit after the headliner event, the while is still a great story. I loved hearing about the state of science before and after the Great Eclipse.
I loved this book! I heard about it on the podcast Science Talk and decided to purchase it. I am a regular Jane who loves science but doesn't learn it easily. I am more of a history person so this was a perfect way to learn about solar eclipses. Baron truly brings the stories of Edison, Mitchell, and Watson to life. I knew little about Mitchell and now have a new historic woman to discover. I'm from Cincinnati and a member of the Cincinnati Observatory so I loved reading about us and Abbe Cleveland in Chapter 13. Once I started it, I couldn't stop. It was engaging and made so many scientific principles simple and enjoyable to understand. Will be looking into more of David Baron's books. So glad I heard him on the podcast.
