Sue Baker's view...

Starting with Thales of Miletus (624 BCE) who is said to have predicted a solar eclipse and ending with Geoffrey Marcy (1954-) who has furthered our knowledge of distant unseen planets this history is told through the achievements of individual scientists, the short biographical entries are an ideal way to absorb the history of science. Entries show biographical details and there are timelines throughout, with tip-boxes giving the context of each discovery. An ideal introduction to science for older children and adults, especially good for anyone new to the subject or wanting to learn more.
