"Sobel does wonders clearly explaining scientific principles... [She] is a most original writer, with a reverence for history and storytelling."
"[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."
