The bestselling author of Longitude returns with another fascinating book in which she chronicles the history of the Copernican Revolution, relating the story of astronomy from Aristotle to the Middle Ages. Sobel paints a rich picture of the times, and the conflicting personalities and extraordinary discoveries that shaped the Copernican Revolution. At its heart is Nicolaus Copernicus who defied common-sense and received wisdom  to place the Sun at the centre of our universe. Bold and richly imaginative, Sobel has written another masterpiece.
