Galileo's Daughter: A Drama of Science, Faith and Love

Galileo's Daughter - Dava Sobel Interesting to read about the trials and tribulations of Galileo and his on/off heretical Copernican beliefs. I was less interested in the letters from his daughter though (she always seems to be asking for money – and that put me right off!). Personally would have preferred if it was a more straight-forward biography of the man himself.
