I really enjoyed reading this book. Chalk-full of information about who really made the greatest discoveries in science and mathematics. Very well-detailed, with proof and information that made me question what I had learned and thought I knew about famous people and "their" Discoveries.
Would recommend it to anyone interested in wanting to figure out the "truth" of how some of the oldest and greatest discoveries really were, well, discovered.
