With erudition and remarkable clarity, the author explains the precise nature of each man’s work, placing it in the context of its time and correcting many misconceptions about it. Where possible, he allows the astronomers to speak for themselves, quoting key passages from their writings. Many of these passages are translated into English for the first time."
