"Athanasius Kircher is a curious but underrated scientist. He was the typical Renaissance man, in the period in which Renaissance was transitioning to Modernity. Some of his work is of dubious merit but he had some really original ideas.
I expected a biography and it is, but oriented to children. Even i´m not the intended public, i think the book is great. The explanations are simple but interesting and the illustrations are really cute.
I could argue with the author whether if Galileo really proved Copernican theory or if Giordano Bruno was really burned at the stake for heresy or political reasons, but these are matter for adult debate and not really the point in a children´s book.
In general i think the book is great and something i would gladly buy for my nephews or nieces.
*Thanks to the publisher for sending me an advanced reader copy in exchange for a honest review, via Netgalley*
