KIRKUS REVIEW

 In the new ``Science Discoveries'' series, a prolific author provides a straightforward account of Galileo's life and times. Extensively illustrated with paintings, engravings, drawings, and photos, the book makes clear what Galileo discovered, how it differed from conventional wisdom, and why the differences earned him the enmity of the church. A good introduction in attractive format. Chronology, glossary, index. Simultaneously published: Parker's Charles Darwin and Evolution. (Nonfiction. 8-12)
