"Delightful. ... Cutler has
managed to make whole cloth out of the vague threads of
the Steno story, and has interwoven tales from the scientific
and social fabric of the time, enough to make this one of
the best books of scientific history in recent years. The
tale of Steno has been a long time coming, but on the evidence
of this splendid volume, it has been well worth the wait."
Simon Winchester, The Boston Globe
