Enjoy History Of Science? Here's A Book For You

Forbes, Nancy; Mahon, Basil. Faraday, Maxwell and the Electromagnetic Field: How Two Men Revolutionized Physics. New York: Prometheus Books, 2014.

You think the subject is old stuff. You think you know the subject pretty well. You studied the subject in physics class 1966-1968 and most of the seminal research took place in the 19th century.

You spot this book on the "New Books" shelf at the library. You yawn. You shrug and check it out anyway.

Then you read it and you're blown away...

Seriously: this is popular science writing at its best.
