Praise

“In the brilliant tradition of Dava Sobel’s Longitude and Ken Alder’s The Measure of All Things, Robert Whitaker’s book places the scientific discovery of terrestrial distances within a gripping human drama, where science, society, and the human heart are intertwined.”
–Alan Lightman, author of Einstein’s Dreams

“A rare story, taut with intellectual controversy, romantic passion, and harrowing danger.”
Booklist (starred review)
