The Man Who Changed Everything: The Life of James Clerk Maxwell

Portada

This is the first biography in twenty years of James Clerk Maxwell, one of the greatest scientists of our time and yet a man relatively unknown to the wider public. Approaching science with a freshness unbound by convention or previous expectations, he produced some of the most original scientific thinking of the nineteenth century — and his discoveries went on to shape the twentieth century.

Review: The Man Who Changed Everything: The Life of James Clerk Maxwell

Reseña de usuario  - Suzi Obrien - Goodreads

This is an enjoyable and lovingly written biography. I was pleased to read not only about Maxwell the brilliant scientist, but about Maxwell the truly remarkable man. He is one of those fellows I'd love to have access to a time machine for! Leer reseña completa
