About the Author

James Trefil is Clarence J Robinson Professor of Physics at George Mason University. Author of over 40 books and the recipient of numerous awards, he is renowned for his ability to explain science to non-scientists.

Reviews

"Trefil is a well-known interpreter of science for the layperson, and achieves that goal very well in this effort. He selects important advances in a number of historical periods and then analyzes specific scientific disciplines... [and] the material is presented in a logical, clear, coherent fashion...Summing Up: Highly Recommended." - D. W. Hill, University of North Texas, CHOICE
