It took FOREVER to finish this book. On the one hand, it was an interesting read as you get to meet not only Galileo, but the various people in his life. On the other hand, it gets bogged down in several spots due to the inclusion of mathematical equations. The explanations go on for several pages. It got to the point where I just skimmed those sections to get back to the history.
