Even students who are not inclined toward the sciences will find this book a great read. It is as much about the history of humanity and our curiosity regarding the world around us as it is an informative survey of our scientific breakthroughs. Included are early achievements—such as the discovery of fire and written language—and modern triumphs of ingenuity such as space exploration, genetics, information technology, and the so-called God Particle. A history of the sciences that is also a history of human creativity, knowledge, experimentation, and invention, this book inspires a love and respect for curiosity, learning, and understanding that is more important than ever.
