Following the success of the first title in the Great Scientists series in the Junior Classics range, this collection features the lives of nine more remarkable scientists, with descriptions of their discoveries. From the astronomy of Copernicus and Halley to the natural science of Linnaeus and Humboldt, and from the discoveries of Pascal, Davy, Volta, and Babbage to the harnessing of atomic power by Julius Oppenheimer, it explores the contributions made by these great scientists and their impact on our everyday lives.
"Narrator Benjamin Soames presents listeners with snapshots of nine scientists and their impactful discoveries in this collective biography...The scientists' work covers a variety of scientific fields including astronomy, geometry, physics, and chemistry. Each bio begins with a short clip of classical music that provides a delightful transition between each scientist's story. Soames keeps to a steady pace and energetic tone throughout his narration, which helps hold the listener's attention and bring these important scientists to life. Science enthusiasts and novices alike will be intrigued by the brief yet informative biographies."-- "AudioFile"
