I'm not sure why I read this. Read about half of it, although towards the end I got lazy. Whats interesting is that these three books are included as "great books" but they are in fact dated. If anyone were to read this, it wouldn't be for the content in it. We have here, Fourier's "Analytic Theory of Heat", Lavoisier's "Elements of Chemistry" and Faraday's "Experimental Researches in Electricity" all of which are founding books of modern science but definitely dated by contemporary standards.

Michael Faraday, FRS (22 September 1791 – 25 August 1867) was an English scientist who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include those of electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis.
