Longitude The True Story of A Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time By Sobel, Dava Book - 1995

A compelling read for someone who had very little interest in the subject, but became fascinated in how sailors explored the oceans before the technology was fully developed. The persistence of the man who really pushed the technological leap is what also makes this book an important read. The movie was a good interpretation of the book, but as a read, this book is in my top 10 non-fiction reads.
