More About The Clockwork Universe by Edward Dolnick
 
 
 
Overview
New York Times bestselling author Edward Dolnick brings to light the true story of one of the most pivotal moments in modern intellectual history--when a group of strange, tormented geniuses invented science as we know it, and remade our understanding of the world. Dolnick's earth-changing story of Isaac Newton, the Royal Society, and the birth of modern science is at once an entertaining romp through the annals of academic history, in the vein of Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything, and a captivating exploration of a defining time for scientific progress, in the tradition of Richard Holmes' The Age of Wonder.
