In this fascinating and illuminating work, Leonard Mlodinow guides us through the critical eras and events in the development of science, all of which, he demonstrates, were propelled forward by humankind's collective struggle to know. From the birth of reasoning and culture to the formation of the studies of physics, chemistry, biology, and modern-day quantum physics, we come to see that much of our progress can be attributed to simple questions--why? how?--bravely asked.

A historical account of mans early development and knowledge. Focuses more intensely on specific researchers from Newton into 20th century. Occasional injected of humor adds both entertainment and some flavor. In addition the author also shares some appropriate/ sobering experiences from his fathers (WW2 hollocaust) life.
