Summary and Info
I skimmed this book for background information, and was impressed that Magner's did not interpret and judge ancient history on a modern science basis, but rather presented and evaluated each scientist as he dealt with the information he had, answering the questions presented to him by the culture in which he lived. Magner also did very well explaining scientific ideas to me -- a somewhat scientifically educated, but non-science major.
