Críticas:

'This is a clearly written and informative work that brings alive and throws new light on a compelling episode ... It is an attractive book and accessible to a broad constituency.' June Barrow-Green, BSHM Newsletter

From a translation of an article appeared in Il Sole-24 Ore: 'Guicciardini offers an original key to the reading of the Principia, which is the mature result of the research of a scholar, better known abroad than in Italy. He is among the greatest authorities in his field.' Umberto Bottazzini, Il Sole-24 Ore

'This reviewer enjoyed reading Reading the Principia.' Applied Mechanics

'The book is a first-rate contribution to the history of science.' E. Knobloch, Zentralblatt MATH
