Michael Faraday by Stewart Ross
  

Synopsis

Michael Faraday by Stewart Ross

As well as telling the story of Faraday's life from his childhood to his position as Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution, this book looks at the impact of his discoveries on world history. The science behind his investigations into electricity, magnetism and electrolysis is explained through interesting diagrams, and quotes from Faraday and his contemporaries give an insight into this famous scientist's mind.

Reviews

Full of fascinating, thumbnail details. -- The Daily Telegraph 20020702 'A superb series...These books would be excellent both for a library and for children and teachers to read as part of a science course.

'this handy and friendly foursome, with a good standard of illustration, is well worth the outlay of a few Faradays.'

About the Author

Stewart Ross

After several years teaching at a variety of institutions in Britain, the USA, the Middle East and Sri Lanka, Stewart Ross became a full-time writer eleven years ago. With over 175 published titles to his credit, in a remarkably short time he has become one of Britain’s most popular and versatile authors.

Current projects include a third adult novel, five volumes in Hodder's Survivors series of children's historical fiction, more volumes in their Stories From History for young children, several other historical stories and works of non-fiction, a Jubilee revue, and a musical with Paul Englishby (musical director of Captain Corelli's Mandolin'). A frequent lecturer, notably on the QE2, and occasional journalist and broadcaster, Stewart lives near Canterbury with his wife and four children. Each morning escapes domestic hubbub by commuting ten metres to work in a large hut in the garden.
