Reviews

"Fascinating. Mark Brake takes a story about the political manipulation of the scientific ideasof Greek natural philosophers by the established church across two millennia and with a facility and style rare among scientists and an acute understanding of the human condition breathes life into the entire fabric. A compelling, thought provoking and inventive narrative." - Roy Davies, author of The Darwin Conspiracy: Origins of a Scientific Crime
