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.

"..an absorbing account of Maxwell s life and work" (Sunday Telegraph Review, 19 th September 2004)
"...provides the reader with the opportunity to understand Maxwell's contributions to modern science and technology." (The Mathematical Gazette, March 2005)
"...a fascinating book about an inspiring man..." (Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, Vol.36, No.3, March 2005)
