it was amazing

I was looking for a book to answer "when did people figure out stuff, how did they figure it out, how did that knowledge trickle down, and when and how?" This is that book. It's shockingly readable and engaging while also being as dry and academic as a legitimate "history of knowledge and stuff" needs to be.
