really liked it

This book describes ten elegant science experiments that allowed their designers to answer specific questions they had of the universe, such as Galileo's measurements of our planet's gravity or William Harvey demonstrating that blood circulates throughout our bodies. Johnson puts equal emphasis on the experiments and the people conducting them, and does a good job placing the work in the context of its historical moment and the life of its designer.
