Review: The Sleepwalkers: A History of Man's Changing Vision of the Universe

User Review  - Kay - Goodreads

This was a very good history of scientific development showing how discoveries were made almost by accident and not in any directly progressive way. However, I wasn't impressed with Koestler's style and I thought there were a couple of passages which could have been reduced by the editor. Read full review

User Review  - Robert Bagnall - Goodreads

For such a potentially dry subject, a wonderful voyage through the history of science. Read twice, once at university and recently, 20+ years later. Read full review
