For those inspired to venture further the comprehensive bibliography will be an added bonus.' Zentrallblatt fur Mathematik
"...an astonishingly rich and detailed summary of the principal theories in physics from Galileo to the present day, explaining their historical, conceptual, interpretive, speculative, and empirical sources.... this book is extraordinarily rich in excellent history, from the ancient Greeks to the present.... Those willing to put in the work needed to study this book will be rewarded with what I believe is a most worthwhile perspective on the legacy we have inherited from Galileo onward."
