Reviews
"A second edition of this widely used translation with a new preface summarizing Galileo
scholarship since 1989, an expanded bibliography, and very slight revisions and corrections in the translation as well as in the introductory and concluding essays."-- "Journal for the History of Astronomy"
"Van Helden's new edition remains the best available for a student readership and as good a starting point as any to this revolutionary, scintillating book."-- "Metascience"
