A history of the scientific method and the contributions of Isaac Newton and other key figures of the scientific revolution. Clockwork Universe explores the world and context in which these scientists lived in and how it would shape the course of their lives and work. I found the book hard to follow and I didn't feel invested that much in the key figures stories.

Motivations to Read

Another book inspired by my love for science and history. Newton had big impact in the world with his scientific contributions and I wanted to learn more about his life.

3 Reasons to Read

  • Those interested in the history and the history of science specifically
  • The history of Isaac Newton and the transition to modern science
  • Learn about London in the 1600s
