From Pythagoras to Galileo to Newton to Hawking, Eureka! dives into the stories of fifty scientists that shaped human history. While some names are to be expected (Darwin, Einstein, Hubble) but others you may have trouble naming their contributions to science off the top of your head. Regardless of if you're familiar with the scientist or not, Grant's interesting stories and facts will keep you reading. Since the book is divided into fifty sections-one for each scientist-it is easy to pick up and put down, though I found myself reading large chunks at a time.
Students, especially science lovers, will enjoy Eureka! and it will also make a great nonfiction tie-in for science or language arts teachers looking to build background information and give context for some of the greatest discoveries in human history.
