    Gave up on page 168 (out of an actual 288) because it became redundant and no longer enjoyable to read. Worthwhile premise, worth the 5 bucks or so it costs on Amazon, but goes a little too in depth on specific concepts unless you are particularly interested in Kepler.

    Read with caution. This book is really, truly difficult--even my professor says this. But as I went on to other readings about Copernicus and Kepler (and many others), I found myself referring back to what Hallyn discusses about how hypotheses, etc. are formed, using the two noted scientists as examples. I appreciate Hallyn's comparative approach to science. Fascinating, actually.
