Jonathan Davis renders a solid narration of this scientific biography of Galileo. In it we hear the stirrings of today's scientific debates over topics such as climate change. The Italian scientist was cautious about promulgating some of his views, particularly about Earth not being the center of the universe, because of pressure from the Church. Science deniers, then as now, refused to accept fact-based interpretations of evidence. Davis's even, pleasant voice carries listeners along as they learn about Galileo's pioneering work in what would become the field of experimental physics. Davis is adept with Italian names and Latin titles, although in the latter case it would have been helpful if the author had translated more of them into English.
