Written by internationally renowned BBC science correspondent Dr. David Whitehouse—the world’s most cited science journalist—Renaissance Genius paints a fascinating portrait of the astronomer. Beautifully written, gorgeously packaged, and eminently knowledgeable, it offers a smart alternative to dry, academic studies of the subject.
Dr. Whitehouse invites the reader to journey into the world of the Italian Renaissance at a crucial time of change—when science clashed with a church still mired in a medieval mindset. He helps us fully appreciate Galileo’s revolutionary discoveries…and his role in opening up the cosmos to all mankind.

Dr. Whitehouse brings Galileo Galieli into light by providing vivid detail into how he became influential in astronomy as he faced critical opposition. This book should be at the top of any aspiring astronomer and/or professional.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
