Praise

“An amazing tour de force, a grand history, and an irresistable account of an around-the-world odyssey in search of an elusive moving target.”—Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind

“A quite extraordinary book, which I absolutely loved. It’s a fabulously provoking history of discoveries, dreams, and delusions. I shall bask in its shimmering digressions, crazy cross-references, and dizzy overviews for many moons.”—Richard Holmes, author of The Age of Wonder
 
“Remarkably comprehensive and engrossing . . . Apollo, Ra, Inti or Huitzilopochtli—all would rock with delight at Cohen’s sweeping endeavor.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
 
“A firework of a book . . . sprinkled throughout with such glittery delights.”—The Wall Street Journal
 
“On every single page there is something utterly fascinating.”—Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials
 
“[Full of] playfulness and jam-packed lyricism.”—The Boston Globe
