The Man Who Changed Everything. The Life of James Clerk Maxwell

This is the first biography in twenty years of James Clerk Maxwell, one of the greatest scientists of our time and yet a man relatively unknown to the wider public. Approaching science with a freshness unbound by convention or previous expectations, he produced some of the most original scientific thinking of the nineteenth century– and his discoveries went on to shape the twentieth century.
