In this book you will learn about how these three men were able to turn their respective worlds upside-down with their unconventional thinking, thirst for knowledge, far-reaching vision, and sheer genius.
They all had rather different personalities but what unites them is that they all wanted to know how the world really worked, and were able to train their minds to accomplish that goal. It wasn't easy for any of them and they all lived in relative isolation developing their ideas and inventions, often receiving opposition from the existing scientific, political, and cultural establishment, but in so doing they were able to transform our understanding of the universe and society in a way that led to the birth of the modern scientific age. The modern world is indebted to these men for good or ill.

Really good overview of the material.
Hits the main points and provides decent context for some of the choices each man made.

brief overview of 3 important men
I thought the information was great and well written, but the marathon lacked enthusiasm, and I would have preceded more time spent on the discoveries themselves.
