S. Ananthanarayanan was a student of physics who strayed into the world of newspapers, banking and then the civil services. But he stayed committed to the sciences and the dissemination of science, and has brought current developments in the sciences to lay newspaper readers through a weekly column since the year 2001. In an earlier book, Icons from the World of Science, he describes to the general reader the work of ten Indian scientists. In recognition of his work, in the year 2007, he received a national award for science communication from the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.

Eureka! races through twenty-three centuries of the spirit of enquiry and discovery, which uncovered secret after secret about the ways of nature. From early Greeks to twentieth-century scientists, this book takes readers to the discoveries of Copernicus, Kepler, Newton, Amp�re, Huygens, Dalton, Darwin and many more. Each chapter describes the work of pivotal scientists who sought out and seized patterns that transformed human understanding of nature and the world. The work of each scientist is presented in the context of the time, the challenges faced, the misconceptions cleared and the opposition overcome. This book tells the story of how scientists, through the ages, strove to understand the nature of the physical world, and will, hopefully, inspire new ways of dealing with current challenges.
