    schema:reviewBody ""You might know what is said about Galileo, but not many people know what Galileo himself actually said! His demanding and often misquoted discourse has resulted, over the years, in slurs against his name and reputation as a scientist. Let him speak then, so that he can bring to everyone's attention his message of reason, of intellectual honesty, and of free thinking. A message that, more than ever, is of great relevance in the rampant irrationality of the new millennium." "The exposition begins with a blunt 'self-portrait'. A 'forgery' of course, based largely on extracts from Galileo's writings and private letters; something he would never have dared, nor been allowed, to write for the public. The selection of writings offered in this book includes many of the subjects that were closest to Galileo's heart and uppermost in his mind, and is accompanied by a lively commentary elucidating literary, scientific, and historical features. For those who want to know the mathematics behind Galileo's theories, each chapter closes with a separate self contained summary." "Thus Spoke Galileo will allow the reader to appreciate the work and the writing-style of a great scientist and author who has had a decisive influence on the modern world."--Jacket." ;
