The Illustrated On the Shoulders of Giants The Great Works of Physics and Astronomy (2004, Running Press Perseus Book)

Review :

4.5/5 stars

"On the Shoulders of Giants" is a collection of some of the most influential works of Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton and Einstein with Stephen Hawking provided the short biography and his comments on each scientist above. I must admit that the original work of the four most important figures (with the exception of Einstein's) is completely incomprehensible to me as they are around four hundred years old, thus making the method of writing and explaining concepts quite different from today's world. But I love the short descriptions and the personal views that Stephen Hawking wrote.
