Longitude, by Dava Sobel



For anyone interested in history, astronomy, or the earth sciences, this is a great little book. It describes in an easy, readable fashion how the quest to solve the problem of determining longitude at sea was finally resolved, by a clockmaker named Harrison. It's the story of how he invented a chronometer which allowed sailors to accurately calculate their position at sea, something which had never been possible before.
