    Joint reviewHeavenly IntrigueBy Joshua Gilder and Anne-Lee GilderKepler’s WitchBy James A. ConnorOne of the delights of reviewing is to have your expectations overturned. I was doubly lucky with these two books. When I first looked at them, I anticipated that Kepler’s Witch would be an intriguing account of one of the more obscure events in the life of the great astronomer Johannes Kepler, but that Heavenly Intrigue, which suggests that Kepler murdered his patron Tycho Brahe, would be the wo [...]

    Very interesting. Persuasive but with substance. Hard facts are softened, or more like they were explained in a way that is understandable to most people. It's truly entertaining for a book that has put forth so many information and facts.

    Fans of astronomy and the history of science will enjoy this biography of Tycho Brahe, the famous Danish astronomer/inventor, and Johannes Kepler, the author of the three laws of planetary motion that changed our view of the solar system forever.But Kepler was a troubled soul, and his intersection with Brahe turned fatal - for Brahe.

    Fascinating history of Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe's death in the 17th century, and Johannes Kepler's obsession with obtaining Brahe's data. After reading this, you will come away with the opinion that one of these guys is a complete d!@k (I won't tell you which one). Part biography, part examination of their discoveries and theories, and part forensic investigation. New evidence and forensic techniques prove what really happened over 400 years ago. Good stuff.
