Any suggestions. They have some on the internet archive from 1905 for free

I may go with the dummies, only 16 bucks in ebook form.

Probably not a lot of Relativity and Quantum mechanics in those then.

I enjoyed the Blackmore speech at TED that you turned me on to, and I imagine her books are equally enjoyable. I wonder if she gets into her theory of Temes in that book?

If you go to the Sony site using their Reader software, you'll see it's for sale in Canada only.

I really like Carl Sagan. Anything that he has wrote is good. I hate that he is gone... I also like Richard Dawkins; although not on quite the same level.

I've read Kaku's books. I would recommend any of them.

I just watched Creation, and it strikes me as historically questionable. I find it hard to believe, for example, that the Great Naturalist could see and speak with his dead daughter. Also the character of Charles Darwin seemed wrong. I had a hard time believing that the man portrayed in the movie could string 10 coherent sentences together, much less write a foundational work of scientific literature like The Origin of Species.

Two questions:

(1) Can anyone recommend a good non-fanciful biography of the man?

(2) Has anyone read his autobiography?

Thanks!

Tom, it that the one that was "panned" by the theaters/critics here in the U.S.?

I watched a multipart dramatized biography on PBS .... sorry my alzheimers is preventing me remembering the name, but I thought it was well done. (I don't usually like dramatizations)

AH, I think it was this one I saw:
