Reviews
"Draw the Lightning Down offers the reader a novel, and downright refreshing, viewpoint on the science and technology that were most central in bringing about the Enlightenment. . . . [It] presents the reader with a wonderfully researched and delightful voyage into the past. This one is well worth taking."--Shawn Carlson, "American Scientist"
