This is the story of how John Harrison solved the greatest scientific problem of his time, how to find longitude. His clocks are works of genius and artistry and he was truly an amazing person. Yes, I have read this book, I really enjoyed it and learned an enormous amount about the struggles he went through and the politics of the time. It felt like an extension of the program on the ABC called Longitude.
Affiliate Marketing is at work on this website. I will take care to only link to books I recommend, if I don't recommend it I won't link to it. There may possibly be other items, I'm considering if I'll request affiliation with one or more travel companies but I'm not entirely happy with the companies I've seen. Buying after clicking on a link to a bookshop will give me a percentage of the sale.
