I gave this book as a Christmas gift to a friend, a PhD geologist... Just spoke to him and he loved it. The way it was written, and the new insights it has given him about another scientist, his life, attributions as well as difficulties of the Renaissance, wonderful time of many discoveries. Although familiar with Galilei, he found that he learned many new pieces of information that he was not familiar with. The illustrations were also appreciated.

Galileo is my favorite scientist.

Weakly written, weakly proofread, and even the illustrations prove repetitive and at times unconnected to the text.
