Asimov's Biographical Encyclopedia of Science and Technology

In this remarkably thorough and wholly absorbing book, Isaac Asimov traces the history of science, from ancient Egypt to the atomic age--through the lives and careers of teh men and women who made it. In 1,510 biographical sketches he supplies a wealth of facts and anecdotes that illuminate each person's contribution to the world of science. And by arranging the entries chronologically, he shows as well the interactions among the various individuals and among the various brances of science. From Imhotep to Neil Armstrong, from Cleveland Abbe to Vladimir Zworykin, Asimov captures the vast scope and human drama of scientific discovery in a book that makes an invaluable reference--and fascinating reading.
