From the universally praised New York Times science writer George Johnson ( He provides some of the best science writing I have come across in a long timeo Paul Davies), an irresistible book on the ten most fascinating experiments in the history of science moments when a curious soul posed a particularly eloquent question to nature and received a crisp, unambiguous reply. Ch. 1 - Galileo: The Way Things Really Move Ch. 2 - William Harvey: Mysteries of the Heart Ch. 3 - Isaac Newton: What a Colour Is Ch. 4 - Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier: The Farmer's Daughter Ch. 5 - Luigi Galvini: Animal Electricity Ch. 6 - Michel Faraday: Something Deeply Hidden Ch. 7 - James Joule: How the World Works Ch. 8 - A. Michelson: Lost in Space Ch. 9 - Ivan Pavlov: Measuring the Immeasurable Ch. 10 - Robert Millikan: In the Borderland The diligence of all these scientists was rewarded: in an instant, confusion was swept aside, and something new about nature leapt into view.

One of the world's finest science journalists tells the story of the ten greatest scientific experiments - which in a moment profoundly changed our understanding of the universe.
