Galileo's Daughter: A Historical Memoir of Science, Faith, and Love

Galileo's Daughter: A Historical Memoir of Science, Faith and Love - Dava Sobel really interesting historical stuff about galileo and about science and physics of the time. i was less interested in the stuff about his daughter, but it does seem always somehow surprising to learn about the private lives of famous intellectuals.also, it was interesting to read a book all about science (demon in the freezer) then to read a book whose action focuses around religion (the amen corner) to then read a history about a man that worked hard to reconcile the two.
