Someone once saw this book on my Amazon wishlist, and said I should skip it as it was really boring. I have to admit they were correct. I originally thought it was historical fiction based on the description, and then when I found out it was a historical biography, I was hoping for something along the lines of “John Adams” and “1776.” Unfortunately this was no where near as riveting. I did make it through, though I have to admit I skimmed through some sections. The most interesting part was regarding Galileo’s trial.
