John S. Rigden and Roger H. Stuewer have most generously reviewed The Sun Kings in September 2007 edition of the journal Physics in Perspective.  They begin, “Few authors of science-based books combine the page-turning quality of a good novel with scientific information that entrances the reader. Drama and sharp-edged scientific data are often seen and experienced as mutually exclusive. As both editors of this journal know, the history of science can be tedious; however, it can also be both dramatic and rich with information that illuminates science itself. The book by Stuart Clark, The Sun Kings: The Unexpected Tragedy of Richard Carrington and the Tale of How Modern Astronomy Began proves beyond doubt the latter point. For several reasons, The Sun Kings is a book everyone should read.”

The full review is published in Physics in Perspective (PIP), Volume 9, Number 3 / September, 2007.
