I did not like this book. Much much better book about same subject is one from George Gamow "Great physicist from Galileo to Einstein". I only bought it because of Gino Segre (authors nephew himself author of excellent books, I really liked rading) recommendation.
The book is more about biographies of physicist and lists of their work with particularly annoying quotation of their letters, papers etc than about how physics evolved through history
