Review:
I picked this up in a bookstore in large parts because of the cover and because I think science is fascinating, so this seemed like a great read. And although it was interesting in parts, overall it was just an ok read for me.

I'd say the information you get about the different scientists and their work are more like crumbs than bites. It's very brief, and to me this was a bit disappointing because I already knew a lot of it, as I imagine a lot of people do. I expected this to offer some, if not many, new insights into familiar characters, or at least interesting tidbits you'd not neccesarily know, but this had neither.

For me, this worked as a refresher of a lot of things I already knew, but didn't offer up anything groundbreaking. I do think this can be an interesting read as a very basic introduction to some of the more important scientists, and I imagine I would've really loved this book when I was twelve.
