Scientific Feuds: From Galileo to the Human Genome Project

As Harry Hill might put it, I like Isaac Newton and I like Gottfried Liebniz, but which is better? Only one way to find out… In 1684 Newton and Liebniz spectacularly fell out over who had been first to invent ‘calculus’ – a maths technique for figuring out how quantities change with time. The result was a royal rumble that lasted until Leibniz’s death in 1716. Scientific Feuds looks at this and other great vendettas in science history. Levy contends these fights drive scientific progress. It’s nicely written, with timelines and full-colour artwork throughout
