John Noble WilfordFor Gingerich, an astrophysicist and historian of science at Harvard, the quest became a 30-year obsession described in The Book Nobody Read: Chasing the Revolutions of Nicolaus Copernicus -- a fascinating story of a scholar as sleuth. His enthusiasm for what might be judged a rather fine point of history is infectious. His book deserves to be read not only by historians and bibliophiles, but by anyone with a taste for arcane detective adventures and a curiosity about the motivations of scholarly perseverance.
