I enjoyed this rather more than I thought I would. Initially put off by the technical aspects, it is worth persevering because it is an astonishing account of how one of the greatest puzzles was solved. The tenacity of John Harrison and the wheeling and dealings of all those scientific bodies out to undermine him makes for gripping reading, even if you have to backpeddle a couple of pages to refresh!
