    One thought on “Galileo and Newton”

    1. อ่านเล่มนี้จบตอนเดินทางจากดับลินกลับกรุงเทพฯ ซื้อมาเป็น ebook เลยไม่รู้ว่าหนาบางแค่ไหน แปลกใจว่าทำไมอ่านแป๊บเดียวจบแล้ว ปรากฏว่าเล่มเล็ก ความยาวแค่ 105 หน้าเท่านั้นเองแนะนำสำหรั [...]

    2. A great and quick read! A good, albeit relatively short, summary of their lives, achievements, and importance. Book wasn't optimized for Kindle to have proper references where needed, but there are sources in the end.

    3. I really enjoyed this book which examines the life of two of the greatest scientists in human history. Bixby delves into the challenges and flaws both men faced as they tried so hard to put forward their observations and theories. Well worth the read.

    4. Nice, brief overview of each scientific yistThis is a short book and I would not really consider this a full biography of these men. But it's a nice, quick read that gives you some insight into their genius in the context of their times.

    5. Rather interesting for readers who don’t want to be lost in incomprehensible scientific explications but still get a glimpse of the enormous work done by these two men.

    6. Another very short history book linking the science work of Galileo and Newton. Great writing in this, and very good research. My only wish was that the book was longer, but the main gist of this book was that these two scientists both bucked the prevailing wisdom of the days. Rather than accepting 'science' that was based on simple observations (and this type of science is still used today), these men decided they need to use experimentation to prove their theories. Galileo and Newton disturbed [...]

    7. Disappointing bookSadly this book just glosses over the lives and discoveries of Newton and Galileo. Nothing new or insightful here. Other books do a much better job of characterizing these two.

    8. A short interesting readI'm not super sciency, so the brevity of this work appealed to me. I found it fascinating how many obstacles both Galileo and Newton had to overcome to get thinking to change and science to move forward. It was interesting to read more about the background of these two men. If you are fascinated by science, this read will probably not be deep enough, but if you are a casual reader you will probably find the content interesting.

    9. Thin GruelI had hoped for more. Differences between the two countries, the two men. But this biography of Newton fails to mention calculus, fails to explore the reaction to Galileo's work, really covers almost anything that distinguishes these gentlemen but the more obvious features. College freshman level work.

    10. Clear summary of physics historyThis book fills the need for a precise summary of the history of the discovery of some of the most basic scientific ideas that are used every day. It treats some complicated topics with the clarity they deserve. It's a great read for a young aspiring scientist or an older person who wishes to simplify his understanding of the universe.

    11. Highly illuminatingA comprehensive study of the lives of two of the founding fathers of modern science. Their lives and works have been adequately covered in an interesting manner. Highly recommended for those interested in the history of science.

    12. An excellent short review of Galileo's and Newton's life and major work. Very clear explanations. Love some of the details, including that Edmund Halley (yes, the comet guyt) coaxed Newton into writing his Principia, and then assumed the financial responsibility for having it printed.

    13. Very good overview about the lives of two of the most revolutionary scientists of all time. We can have an idea about how the society usually misunderstands the great genius. I recommend it to any one who likes History, Maths, or Physics. Easy to read. Difficult to forget.

    14. Great read for anyone new to history or who, like me, didn't learn enough in high school and could use a refresher. Really well written. It's fascinating to get a glimpse into the beginning of modern science.

    15. Great BookGood material. It was able to explain these two with ease. Good for the common man. Highly recommended. Buy it.

    16. Nice little booklette. Quick biographies of these two scholars showing similarities, ties, and differences. Quick easy read.

    17. Two Brilliant MindsThis short synopsis is captivating. The information is accessible to more pedestrian such as mine thanks to brilliant writing of the author's.

    18. Nice short and fast summary of Galieo and Newton. Made me want to read a more in-depth biography of both.
