John Tyndall must rank as one of Ireland’s most successful scientists and educators. He reached the pinnacle of 19th century science and counted amongst his friends and collaborators many of the best-known scientists of that century. Born in Leighlinbridge, County Carlow, his early education has been likened to the hedge school variety, but the expert tutelage of his teacher, John Conwill, ensured he had a solid foundations in mathematics, English composition, drawing and surveying.

Tyndall moved in the highest social and intellectual circles . A friend of Tennyson and Carlyle, as well as Michael Faraday and Thomas Huxley, Tyndall was one of the most visible advocates of a scientific world view as tensions grew between developing scientific knowledge and theology. In 1859, John Tyndall wrote the atmosphere admits of the entrance of the solar heat; but checks its exit, and the result is a tendency to accumulate heat at the surface of the planet. Reading this book reveals a great deal about the inner workings of that generation of scientists, and how they drew from each other, even as they each competed with each other.
