Galileo’s Daughter, Dava Sobel – I REALLY liked this one! It wasn’t exactly what I expected but it was very enjoyable. I got to see a more human side of one of the greatest historical figures of all time, learn about the life of nuns – and everyday people – in Galileo’s time, and understand better the discoveries he made. This is exactly the kind of book that I like to read. Very enjoyable. I gave this to Dad to read, but I don’t think he’s all that interested.
[note: Dad gave this back to me in January ... he never did try to read it.]
