Overview

'If I saw further than others it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants.'
- Sir Isaac Newton


This stylish jacketed hardback introduces 100 of these giants of scientific discovery: the men and women who, often in the face of extreme skepticism or worse, have striven and succeeded in pushing back the boundaries of human knowledge. Ranging across the spectrum of scientific endeavor, from the cosmology of Copernicus and Galileo, to the medical revolutions of Hippocrates and Galen, it includes the fields of physics, biology, chemistry, and genetics.

Spanning from the ancient world to the 20th century, these figures include:
• Aristotle
• Leonardo di Vinci
• Benjamin Franklin
• Isaac Newton
• Marie Curie
• Stephen Hawking

Including brilliant illustrations, fact boxes of key information, and a chronology of important dates, 100 Great Scientists Who Changed the World provides riveting insight into the men and women who shaped the world today.
