Maneesh Sekhri

is there a storyline in the bok or more like facts and info?

Arjun A story line which covers how certain discoveries were made. Different topics are split by chapter. One chapter will cover the history of how the atom was discovered and then how different particles were slowly understood. Another chapter covers how the understanding of gravity came to be. It is a good read if you are looking for something not too technical but at the same time not too basic. I think the author strikes a good balance to show what challenges early scientists faced in the 18th, 19th, and 20th century.
