The Ten Most Beautiful Experiments is an insightful reminder of the intimacy that has been lost in the scientific process. Contrary to technological methods today, these experiments were devised by a person's own two hands and a single mind with relentless curiosity. Johnson gives brief examples of the lost art of the tabletop experiment from an age where the pursuit to reveal the mysteries of light and electricity yielded poetic methods and elegant inventions. I really enjoyed Newton's What Color Is. An overall inspiration for the creative process.
