Summary
"The mathematician and physicist Galileo Galilei is one of the most famous scientists of all time. The story of his life and the age in which he lived, of his epoch-making experiments and discoveries, of his stubbornness and pride, of his patrons in the house of Medici, of his enemies and friends in their struggle for truth - all is brought to life in this book." "Atle Naess has written an account of one of the great figures in European history. For this biography he was awarded the Brage Prize, the most prestigious literary prize in Norway."--BOOK JACKET
