Description

From the bestselling author of Science: A History comes the enthralling story of a revolution that shook the world.

Seventeenth-century England was racked by civil war, plague and fire; a world ruled by superstition and ignorance.

A series of meetings of 'natural philosophers' in Oxford and London saw the beginning of a new method of thinking based on proof and experiment.

John Gribbin's gripping, colourful account of this unparalleled time of discovery explores the impact of the Royal Society, culminating with Isaac Newton's revolutionary description of the universe and Edmund Halley's prediction of the return of a comet in 1759.

This compelling book shows the triumph not as the work of one isolated genius, but of a Fellowship.
