  • I liked the book except one thing. The information on Sigmund Freud's famous concept called "Oedipus Complex" is incomplete if not inaccurate. Freud's Oedipus complex consists of two forms as a negative and positive. "In its positive form, the child's rival is the parent of the same sex and the child desires sexual union with the parent of opposite sex. In its negative form, the child's rival is the parent of the opposite sex and the child desires the parent of the same sex". It seems the book p [...]


  • This book really worth it as it's a great motivator for who lost his sense of curiosity by spending some years on schools. Knowing that how hard it used to be to discover how our world works - which is simply available to all of us and made it seem worthless and ordinary - will change the way you look at your opportunity.


  • I only read the last half of the book this time round, but I have two responses:1. The two page biographies are interesting and a give a quick review of who different people are. Or, if you are new to the history of science, these bios can be used as a quick introduction.2. The English often leaves something to be desired; a good proof reader would have been an asset. Also, a few times I wondered if Balchin was wrong about a scientific statement or if it was my memory that was wrong. I haven't y [...]


  • This book was very informative and clearly written. I would definitely reccommend to others with an interest in science, but not necessarily a vast knowledge on the subject due to age or other factors. It was concise and included many interesting facts and the major (and quite a few minor) accomplishments of a variety of scientists and mathematicians.



  • This is my current bathroom reader. You won't learn much about science, but in two page bios in chronological order you'll gain an overview of the progression of science starting with Anaximander.


  • This is exactly the book I needed to help me study for Jeopardy. Yay science! Thank you, Borders bargain section!


  • Did a good job of summarizing the lives of a 100 great scientists, but I didn't understand much of the science that they did from reading this book!


  • A great book to flick in and flick out of. Almost all the greats are here with one glaring omission. Scientist? Mathematician? Librarian? Poet? Historian? Eratosthenes was all these.
