    It turns out we know a lot about Faraday's public life but little about his private one Writing a non scientific biography therefore seems like trying to make bricks without straw Hamilton tries his best but there's not enough there there

    Sometimes non historians of science can write excellent histories of science here's lookin' at you Richard Holmes And sometimes they really really can't James Hamilton stick to your art history studies A biography of one of the most fascinating characters in 19th century science should not have taken me 3 months to slog through Hamilton managed to make Faraday's life story thoroughly boring The book was filled with unnecessary asides about artists who were extremely peripheral to Faraday's work And Hamilton apparently hasn't heard about linearity or continuity or flow as concepts in writing biographies or in writing anything really Sheesh

    This book wasok The author jams in a ton of uoted passages that seem largely irrelevant and seems particularly fixated on Faradays religion to the point of repetitiveness All in all I will be reading at least one biography of Faraday hopefully a interesting one

    This is my first step into the world of non fiction biographies and I am very glad that I chose this book The writing was light but full of information Hamilton went through Faraday's whole life and there were only one or two tiring chapters I felt as if I actually knew Faraday and when I read the chapter of his death it felt like I was reading a tragedy When you're reading a fictitious book the protagonist almost never dies but in biographies they almost always do The saddest thing is that he was actually once alive This book was very good and very in depth as to Faraday's life Based on this book I definitely plan on reading biographies soon

    A well written biography of the 19th centure English scientist Faraday was unusual in that despite being from a working class family and an obscure Protestant group he was able to become a scientist His career was spent at the Royal Institution in London Faraday's work was primarly in physics and chemistry He was also a great popularizer of science The book is good and plausible on his interest connection with visual arts as well as on his science work

    Insightful account of the life of Micheal Faraday written by an artist this biography offers a uniue prospective I am enjoying the detailed descriptions of his scientific work as well as his personal life
