Review From User :

I very much enjoyed this book about "elegance" in science. As a physicist, I am mostly familiar with elegance in a mathematical setting, and it was refreshing to see some non-physics, non-math settings for elegance. I particularly like the evolution of our understanding on color vision, for example, and learned that the simple tri-color system I had learned about has been superseded by a better theory (at least when it comes to why we see the colors we do after the brain processes the information). For anyone interested in great scientific ideas, this book provides an abundance of great examples.
