Synopsis

Great Scientists and Their Discoveries by David Angus

How did the great scientists make their remarkable discoveries? And what kind of men were they? This companion volume to Inventors and their Inventions introduces the work of 10 men to younger readers, and range from the world of Ancient Greece to the 20th century discovery of DNA. Among them are the crucial discovery that the earth goes around the sun (Galileo), the principle of gravity (Newton), the evolution of the species (Darwin) and the principle of inherited characteristics or genetics (Mendel).

Reviews

The short pieces provide a vibrant and intimate look at scientists, from Aristotle to Einstein, within the context of history. The British narrators provide a formality to the reading that is reminiscence of public television programs and the production is the perfect enhancement for science classes. - Library Media Connection

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
