From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-10-- Parker outlines Galileo's discoveries in the context of the religious and social climate of his times, concluding with his trial by the Inquisition and his subsequent house arrest. The illustrations are mostly in full color, with a few portraits in black-and-white; some drawings help explain his discoveries. A two-page timeline relates the scientific events of Galileo's lifetime to events in politics, European expansion, and the arts. Given its brevity, this is a surprisingly informative volume. --Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA

From Kirkus Reviews:

In the new ``Science Discoveries'' series, a prolific author provides a straightforward account of Galileo's life and times. Extensively illustrated with paintings, engravings, drawings, and photos, the book makes clear what Galileo discovered, how it differed from conventional wisdom, and why the differences earned him the enmity of the church. A good introduction in attractive format. Chronology, glossary, index. Simultaneously published: Parker's Charles Darwin and Evolution. (Nonfiction. 8-12) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.
