Looking for a good biography?

If you are a biography fan and know nothing of Alexander von Humboldt, one of history’s forgotten geniuses comparable with, say, Darwin or Wallace, then read The Invention of Nature: The Adventures of Alexander von Humboldt, the Lost Hero of Science, by Andrea Wulf.  Now available on Amazon for £5  instead of £25.  Nicely bound and plenty of illustrations

“Superb” — The Economist,  “Thrilling” — The New York Revue of Books,  “Magnificent” – Sunday Times,  “Engrossing” — Wall Street Journal,  “Fascinating” — Financial Times, etc.
