Reviews
""David Love's infectious fondness for Kepler enlivens every page of this engaging biography. He has also done his homework: historical accounts are carefully referenced, and there are informative summaries of some of Kepler's major works. Biographical details are enhanced by many of the author's own photographs. In all, this is a welcome contribution to Kepler studies." --William H. Donahue, director of laboratories, St. John's College, Santa Fe, and translator of Kepler's Astronomia Nova and Optics "Kepler's story is a fascinating one, and this is an accessible and well-written guide to the man and his science. Highly recommended." --Chris Lintott, professor of astrophysics, University of Oxford, and presenter of the BBC's The Sky at Night "David Love's book goes far beyond the well-known facts about Kepler's life and works. It would be difficult to find as authoritative a book on Kepler as this, and one which I highly recommend." --Ian Morison, emeritus professor of astronomy, Gresham College
