    More than any other era, the 20th century was the age of science, transforming our understanding of the universe, nature and our origins with developments such as quantum mechanics, the big bang theory and the discovery of the structure of DNA. In this book, the former publisher and founder of Scientific American provides an intelligent layperson's introduction to modern scientific achievement, describing and explaining the most important ideas and discussing the individual scientists who first proposed them.
