Co-written by science historians, one married to physicist Enrico Fermi, this book concisely traces how Galileo (1564-1642) became a great scientist and his clashes with the Church. A translated early paper provides a taste of his ingenuity. This is an unabridged reprint of the Fawcett paperback edition of a work first published in 1961 by Basic Books, Inc.
