Book was organized around the narrative instead of chronological which worked but nessecitated some jumping around and repeating. Liked the intertwining of science, politics, religion-- really felt like I got a feel for the time rather than just facts. Not just a dry recounting, and while there is speculation it feels backed up by fact and is clearly indicated. Don't know how well I would have coped with jumps if I didn't have a pretty solid grounding in the time period historical and philosophically.
Is worth noting, there's somewhat graphic descriptions of experiments preformed on animals that were more than somewhat upsetting.
Overall, interesting book about an incident/movement that I hadn't known much about.
I listened to the audiobook from audible, and the reader was good.
