For the last four hundred years, Galileo has fascinated and inspired writers. As the founder of modern science and the embodiment of the conflict between science and faith, Galileo remains the most fascinating figure of his age. Here Reston writes a lively, dramatic life of Galileo, one that not only takes to the heart of this passionate, embattled, prickly, vain, arrogant, and brilliant man, but also paints a vivid picture of Renaissance Italy.
Galileo: A Life has received 8 foreign editions including Italy, Spain, Germany (2 editions), Brazil, Hungary, Great Britain, and Poland. It is available on tape from Black Stone Audio Books.
