An amusing approach to the history of science! A series of funny biographies of the most famous scientists.

Here the scientist, the genius, speaks directly and with a very colloquial language. Each book is a kind of personal diary.
The illustrations are integral part of the text, functioning as brilliant notes to what is being explained. They act as a visual aid for the reader.
At the end of each chapter there is an historical picture and few notes about scientific and historical settings and a small glossary to explain the main concept.
