With this bestseller, the award-winning science editor of the New York Times Dava Sobel founded a completely new, extremely successful form of popular science non-fiction.

"The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time" tells the story of the Scottish watchmaker John Harrison. He sets himself an ambitious and seemingly impossible goal at the beginning of the 18th century: to devise a method that would allow sailors to determine the exact longitude of their position at sea.

For over forty years, Harrison worked obsessively on the production of a perfect chronometer. Finally, the ingenious mechanic experiences an unprecedented triumph - despite resentment and numerous hostilities.

Translated into German by Matthias Fienbork.

208 pages, format 12.2 x 18 cm, paperback.
