Product Description:

Michael Faraday, inventor of the electric motor, transformer, and generator - who is now considered today the father of electronics - was once warned that he would probably amount to nothing! And to most people, that would have been a fair guess. After all, he left school at a young age, had only the rudiments of an education, and was hindered by a speech impediment his whole life (he couldn't say his 'r's). However, with humility, faith and persistence, he overcame his background and set his mind to developing the inventions that would propel the world into the modern age. Author Charles Ludwig traces the life of this famous, God-fearing scientist from a young boy to his death in 1867, in a highly readable, fictionalized account that is sure to hold the interest of even the non-science minded. Doesn't it make you wonder what God can do with your life? 208 pgs, pb.

Can be hard to read, but still enjoyable
I read this book out loud to my 8 yr old daughter over the course of a few weeks. We started reading it because Faraday had difficulties with his speech and English grammar, and we were interested in that. The first several chapters covering his childhood and how he basically gave himself an education were great. My daughter was super into it and always asked to read more. The second half of the book was harder to read. Lots of detail is given about experiments but not as much focus on Michael's personal life. We plowed through it, but not knowing very much about chemistry made some parts tedious. Still, I found myself feeling emotional reading about the end of his life. I'm glad we took the time to read it, and it inspired me to continue on with my own re-education. I would give it 3.5 stars.
