it was amazing

The bits that resonated with me were all the stories of scientists who for various reasons did not receive recognition for their work, or simply failed in their pursuits. Too often we hear of the successes of great scientists, but Bryson rightly gives these lesser-knowns their due credit and puts into perspective the difficulties faced by those chasing truth and knowledge in a complex and mysterious universe. Great read.
