    Received this book through First Reads Giveaway.2.5 starsI received this book, hoping that this was an analysis of Antonio Neri's glass-making formulas and techniques. Didn't get exactly what I want, though Conciatore sure is an interesting book, since we have enough Copernicus and Galileo biographies already.Without a doubt, glass is a true fruit of the art of fire, as it can so closely resemble all kinds of rocks and minerals, yet it is a compound and made by art.Especially Neri's formula of [...]

    Disclaimer: I got this book for free from the first-read giveaways.This usually isn't the sort of book I would read or choose for myself but I was enchanted by it from the first moment I held it in my hands. First by the cover and the title, and later by the contents. It was a beautiful, informative book that opened my eyes to a whole new world of literature, and to many other things.

    I received this book for free via First Reads.I have had this book for a few months but I have not known what to make of it so it has only just been finished.I think I expected a biography of Neri but it is not just one of them. It delves into the politics, the standard of living and the people in the time he lived in too. It deals with his contemporaries and who he influenced as well as those who influenced him.I was surprised by the level of research in the book (as a side note, Neri's page [...]
