Jeanne Bendick, through text and pictures, admirably succeeds in bringing to life the ancient Greek mathematician who enriched mathematics and all branches of science. Against the backdrop of Archimedes' life and culture, the author discusses the man's work, his discoveries and the knowledge later based upon it. The simple, often humorous, illustrations and diagrams greatly enhance the text.

I bought this to go with the pieces I had of the Beautiful Feet History of Science curriculum. The BF unit study guide is based on Scripture. The study uses this book a lot, among others, including The Way Things Work, so I needed this book. I am happy with the product. Read full review

User Review  - Ann Plante' -

This is a great supplement to any science history course. It is also a great tool for those students who are reluctant to science in general. Adults woud enjoy this book. Read full review
