Jardine's book is incredibly informative and, generally, very interesting. There are some sections that I found to be particularly dry and boring (mostly the chapter(s) on collecting and classifying plants and animals) but, for the most part, Ingenious Pursuits is an enjoyable, comprehensive guide to the Scientific Revolution.
