History • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

For 2,000 years the study of astronomy dominated science from the Mesopotamian era to the Greek philosophers. The Greeks added concepts such as atoms, deductive and inductive reasoning, the scientific method, and logic. Edwin Newman dominates the narration, with his sandy, familiar voice guiding listeners through past millennia without haste. He handles the vocabulary of earlier civilizations and foreign places with ease. Six additional narrators aid Newman by speaking the quotes taken from the writings of the famous personalities mentioned. Their exaggerated portrayals of how these great men spoke proves entertaining. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
