Reviews
"An amazing tour de force, a grand history, and an irresistable account of an around-the-world odyssey in search of an elusive moving target."--Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind

"A quite extraordinary book, which I absolutely loved. It's a fabulously provoking history of discoveries, dreams, and delusions. I shall bask in its shimmering digressions, crazy cross-references, and dizzy overviews for many moons."--Richard Holmes, author of The Age of Wonder

"Remarkably comprehensive and engrossing . . . Apollo, Ra, Inti or Huitzilopochtli--all would rock with delight at Cohen's sweeping endeavor."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A firework of a book . . . sprinkled throughout with such glittery delights."--The Wall Street Journal

"On every single page there is something utterly fascinating."--Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials

"[Full of] playfulness and jam-packed lyricism."--The Boston Globe
