Interesting enough...if you like math and science. I found this one a bit tedious simply because I am NOT a math and science person, but it's got its moments. Like the Eureka! story. I won't spoil it here, but Archimedes' devotion to figuring out something was both amusing and almost laudable.

A real gem. The story and illustrations present scientific principles and the details of Archimedes life clearly and enjoyably.
