The author describes the personal lives and the important discoveries of early scientists such as Joseph Banks, William and Caroline Herschel, Humphry Davy and Michael Faraday. Understanding the lives and thinking of these scientists makes it easier to understand their scientific discoveries.-Jim Wichman
