What do the ancients have to do with today's science? A whole lot, according to author Joy Hakim, who takes readers on a storyteller's journey that begins on the Greek islands with Pythagoras, who, in a toga-clad world, insists on wearing pants. Hakim continues with tales of some big name players, like Galileo, Newton, and Einstein, along with stories of a bevy of scientific sleuths, all contributors to the adventure that has made this the greatest scientific era ever.
