The list below is from the book Science: 100 Scientists Who Changed the World (Enchanted Lion Books: New York, 2003), written by John Balchin.

Ever wondered who was behind some of the greatest scientific breakthroughs of all time but been too intimidated by the overwhelming volume of literature on the subject to know where to begin? Or perhaps been interested in finding out a little bit more about science but have been put off by pages and pages of dry text aimed only at academics? 'Quantum Leaps: 100 Scientists Who Changed The World' is above all a science book which aims to be accessible. My intention in writing this text has been to provide concise, jargon-free insights into the lives and learnings of some of the greatest people who ever lived. Beginning with Anaximander some two and a half thousand years ago and continuing up to the present day, 'Quantum Leaps' is a history of science through the people who discovered it. With each entry an illustrated double page spread, the book can be read in "bite-sized" chunks in random order or chronologically from start to finish. I have tried to offer enough detail on each scientist to be engaging without offering so much as to be off-putting. Consequently, ‘Quantum Leaps’ should appeal to adults, students and children from their early teens onwards keen to understand the impact those included have had on the development of the world, and continue to exert today. I hope you enjoy it. Best wishes,
Jon Balchin
