Quicksilver: Baroque Cycle #01 by Neal Stephenson
Quicksilver: Baroque Cycle  #01

I didn't read this book until this year, 2012. I'm sorry I waited so long. The beginnings of science and the personalities involved have always interested me, and Neal Stephensons's fictitious (but fact filled!) account is addictive reading.

A different point of view regarding manual labor. Who is the real "Einstein," the bookworm or the grease monkey? Author Matthew B. Crawford has the creds in both areas and finds being a mechanic more intellectually challenging/sastisfying. Simply excellent.
