Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ms. Sobel is an elegant stylist, a riveting and efficient storyteller, a writer who can bring the dustiest of subjects to full-blooded life — poignant, in the case of Galileo; cautious but also loving, loyal and feisty in the case of Copernicus.” New York Times
“A thoroughly researched and eminently readable account of a major scientist who celebrated the sun yet lurks in the shadows.” Wall Street Journal
“A liquid entertainment of choice passages on the thoughts and deeds of Copernicus.” Kirkus
