New in Paperback: John Gribbin's THE FELLOWSHIP
John Gribbin's gripping account of the scientific revolution in the seventeenth-century, The Fellowship, has just been released in paperback. This colorful account of the founding fathers of modern science - Gilbert, Bacon, Harvey, Wren, and Newton - and the Royal Society, will appeal to readers of all ages. Freeman Dyson, in the New York Review of Books, called The Fellowship "a portrait gallery displaying a group of remarkable characters who made important contributions to the rise of modern science. . . Dramatic."
