Reviews

"Sobel is a master storyteller.... What she has done, with her choice of excerpts and her strong sense of story, is bring a great scientist to life." --Alan Lightman, New York Times"[Sobel] shows herself a virtuoso at encapsulating the history and the politics of science. Her descriptions of Galileo's ideas... are pithy, vivid, and intelligible." --Wall Street Journal"Sobel does wonders clearly explaining scientific principles... [She] is a most original writer, with a reverence for history and storytelling." --USA Today"Galileo's Daughter is a remarkable work for the beauty of the writing and the clarity of the time and relationships it creates. Sobel pays close attention to fine detail, resulting in a work that feels real." --Denver Post"Sobel seamlessly recounts history as wonderful narrative filled with outsized characters all marching toward a booming climax." --San Diego Union Tribune
