KIRKUS REVIEW

Because the exact origins of the microscope are lost in antiquity, one can only speculate. The author does -- for too long. His re-creations and asides are earnest, honest padding, but it makes the history and development of the instrument from pre-history to the electronic present go on for too long to sustain interest. Many adult general trade titles have chapter length treatments of the subject which seem more likely to retain attention spans at this level.
