From the Publisher"Repcheck paints a vivid picture of the times, in which both Protestantism and intellectual inquiry posed threats to the Catholic worldview. The author also does an admirable job of shining a light on Copernicus's little-known immediate predecessors to show that, like the works of Einstein and Darwin, the scientist's theory didn't spring Athena-like from his brow"
— Publishers Weekly
"Excellent...[Repcheck] is especially good at setting Copernicus vividly in his time."
— NY Sun
"No other biography of which I am aware treats the life of this scientific giant more vividly than this one."
— New York Times Book Review
