New Book on History of Science: John Freely, Before Galileo

Looking through Waterstone’s yesterday I found a new book on the history of science, John Freely’s Before Galileo. I didn’t buy it, and so can’t really comment on its quality. It did, however, appear to be a straightforward history of science from ancient Greece to the early modern period. Hopefully it marks a renewed interest in the history of science, following James Hannam’s God’s Philosophers.
