In the course of a dozen chapters, science writer George Johnson describes ten historic scientific experiments distinguished by their simplicity and elegance. Contrasting these with contemporary teams of university-based researchers with access to multimillion-dollar equipment, Johnson notes that many of the experiments documented in this book - such as Isaac Newton's work with prisms - were carried out by individual scientists using handmade tools in their own homes.

Very good subjects. Unfortunately there little details about the experiments. More graphic illustrations and more elaborate coverage of the theories behind these experiments would make this book more valuable.
