The Last Man Who Knew Everything
"This is a fascinating book" * BBC History Magazine * "Robinson's brisk and engaging biography succeeds in rescuing Young from the "dilettante" charge. His thumbnail sketches of the scientific debates that his hero altered - whether on nautical astronomy, theories of light or the Rosetta Stone - have a clarity and focus Young himself would cheer." * The Independent * Andrew Robinson is a King s Scholar of Eton College and holds degrees from Oxford University and the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. He is the author of more than fifteen books, including The Story of Measurement (2007), and four biographies: Einstein: A Hundred Years of Relativity; The Man Who Deciphered Linear B: The Story of Michael Ventris; Satyajit Ray: The Inner Eye; and Rabindranath Tagore: The Myriad-Minded Man (written with Krishna Dutta).
