"Read Tim Ferris's magnificent new book. Ferris delights in detailing the eccentrics and explorers who took time out from their busy workdays amid raging battles and virulent epidemics to squint and strain and take theri sightings for science . . . This is the best book about the cosmos since Carl Sagan's Cosmos." Chicago Tribune
