The Short Story of Science: A Pocket Guide to Key Histories, Experiments, Theories, Instruments and Methods (Paperback)
Accessible and concise, generously illustrated throughout, and with all the essential information presented without jargon, readers are given all the tools they need to enjoy the fascinating history of scientific knowledge.
"The book's goal is just bringing these things to your attention so that if you're interested you can read further elsewhere. And The Short Story of Science is certainly a very pretty vehicle for accomplishing that." – Ars Technica
"It is quite a feat to cover science’s history and its landmark experiments, theories, and methodology in 224 pages. With clear, accessible writing, the book meets the needs of scientifically-curious but time-pressed general readers who want more than they can find in an encyclopedia or annotated dictionary." - The Pragmatic Idealist
