Directing his polemics against the pedantry of his time, Galileo, as his own popularizer, addressed his writings to contemporary laymen. His support of Copernican cosmology, against the Church's strong opposition, his development of a telescope, and his unorthodox opinions as a philosopher of science were the central concerns of his career and the subjects of four of his most important writings. Drake's introductory essay place them in their biographical and historical context.

It was way better than I expected it to be!!!! I especially loved the letter to the grand duchess Christina......I would recommend this book to people who is interested in the works of Galileo.Was this review helpful?
