Review quote 'This is a superb collection of admirably concise scientific biographies; I wish I had owned a copy when I started presenting television programmes on the history of science. The dictionary could function as a reference for science and hisstory alike. The four members of the Millar family, with their expertise in different areas have done a splendid job of giving brief biographies, chosen the most important scientists, both ancient and living, and made clear and simple explanations of many scientific principles.
It will appeal mainly to young and general readers.
