Summary
Robert Hooke and Edmond Halley were pioneering scientists, whose place in history has been overshadowed by the giant figure of Isaac Newton. Whilst Newton is widely regarded as one of the greatest scientists of all time, and the father of British science, John and Mary Gribbin unearth the truth behind the roles played by Isaac Newton, Robert Hooke and Edmond Halley in the British scientific revolution in the 17th century
