On Friday, September 29th, James Kakalios reviewed CLOCKWORK FUTURES For the Wall Street Journal. Dr. Kakalios is a physics professor at the University of Minnesota, known for his book The Physics of Superheroes. His review appears here; a few of his kinds words:

“Schillace recounts the fascinating history of the real scientists and inventors who laid the foundations for our modern-day technology (such as Edison, Tesla and Volta), along with such fictional practitioners as Dr. Victor Frankenstein and Sherlock Holmes. In a way, the book stands as a companion to Richard Holmes’s popular history “The Age of Wonder.” Entertaining and illuminating. […] It answers some questions I never even thought to ask.”—THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
