John Gribbin, bestselling author of In Search of Schrdinger's Cat, explores the defining decades of the seventeenth century's scientific revolution, when the Royal Society established what became 'the' scientific method, a way of doing and communicating science that set the tone for the three and a half centuries that followed.
