The Last Man Who Knew Everything: Thomas Young.

Subtitled : The Anonymous Polymath Who Proved Newton Wrong, Explained How We See, Cured the Sick, and Deciphered The Rosetta Stone amongst other feats of genius.

No-one has given the extraordinary Thomas Young the all-round examination he so richly deserves until now.

Celebrated biographer Andrew Robinson tells the rich and engrossing story of a modest hero who solved mystery after mystery in the face of ridicule and rejection, and cared less about what others thought of him than for the joys of an unbridled pursuit of knowledge.

Quite a guy. A first class biography. Rare Book.
