"Galileo's Daughter: A Historical Memoir of Science, Faith, and Love" by Dave Sobel
Tradition maintains that while he was forced to recant his astronomical writings that supported the theory of heliocentric, Galileo muttered under his breath, “Eppur si muove” (“and still it turns [around the sun]”).
Dava Sobel does an extraordinary job at bringing Galileo and his age to life, while also revealing a surprisingly tender side to the great scientist through his relationship to his cloistered daughter, Celeste.
