Book Reviews

  • Enjoyed this book. A few things that stood out: - Faraday's lack of a strong math foundation - how non-consensus his ideas were despite all the experimental evidence - both Faraday and Maxwell's focus on proving everything experimentally for themselves https://t.co/asCdJnceViLink to Tweet
