Mr Darwin's Incredible Shrinking World: science and technology in 1859 Reviews
It's my book: I don't rate my own books. It looks handsome, though!
It was ok. It looked, almost in vignette form, at a wide range of social-political-economic-cultural-medical-scientific attitudes and events during the 1850s leading up to, and around the release of 'On the Origin of Species' by Darwin
It includes more technology than science, and just snibbets of information. But still enjoyable and fun.
This book was a wonderful look into the technologies of the past. I found it really insightful and interesting. A very enjoyable read!
excellent review of the world at the time of Darwin.
The scientific age gets seriously advanced. Not the Moon Landing, but nonetheless a Giant leap and a time which changed mankindforever. Worth reading.
