The Invention of Air

The Invention of Air - Steven Johnson As so often happens the publishers put their own spin on advertising. I expected a mainly scientific book surrounding Joseph Priestley's discoveries and work in scientific endeavors. What I got was a general biography of Priestley with a little attention paid to his scientific endeavors. Mostly there were musings on his interaction in international politics and how he played on the field of the developement of the United States. It was a good read, just not what I wanted.
