The Story of Science, Discovery, and the Genius of the Royal Society

SEEING FURTHER edited by Bill BrysonEdited and introduced by Bill Bryson, with original contributions from “a glittering array of scientific writing talent” (Sunday Observer), Seeing Further tells the story of modern science through the lens of the international Royal Society and its fellows—including Isaac Newton, John Locke, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, and Stephen Hawking—who have split the atom, discovered the double helix and the electron, and given us the computer and the World Wide Web.

Here are contributions by more than twenty of the world’s greatest scientific—and science-fiction—thinkers, including:

Richard Dawkins - James Gleick - Neal Stephenson
Richard Holmes - Margaret Atwood - Martin Rees
