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 time" - 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. Chapter 1 - Galileo: The Way Things Really Move; Chapter 2 - William Harvey: Mysteries of the Heart; Chapter 3 - Isaac Newton: What a Colour Is; Chapter 4 - Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier: The Farmer's Daughter; Chapter 5 - Luigi Galvini: Animal Electricity; Chapter - Michel Faraday: Something Deeply Hidden; Chapter 7 - James Joule: How the World Works; Chapter 8 - A. Michelson: Lost in Space; Chapter 9 - Ivan Pavlov: Measuring the Immeasurable; and Chapter 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.
