George Gamow succeeds where others fail because of his remarkable ability to combine technical accuracy, choice of material, dignity of expression, and readability. Gamow's trademark humor enlivens the book quite a bit, as well as his illustrations. On the minus side, the first chapter is marred by the kind of pseudo-history of science in the Middle Ages which, apparently, was a compulsion among science writers of the 20th century.
George Gamow's book "One Two Three. Infinity" is an good survey of the sciences. I bought this book after hearing Noam Chomsky speak highly of it while being interviewed. His chapters on space, the fourth dimension, and relativity dig a bit deeper than "Hawking's Brief History of Time.

Read Gravity, by George Gamow online on Bookmate – Gravity is one of the four fundamental interactions that exist in nature. Understanding gravity is not only essential for understanding the motion. Gravity is one of the four fundamental interactions that exist in nature. Understanding gravity is not only essential for understanding the motion of objects on Earth, but also the motion of all celestial objects, and even the expansion of the Universe itself.
A distinguished physicist and teacher, George Gamow also possessed a special gift for explaining the intricacies of science.
In the days when civilized men believed that the world was flat they had no reason to think about gravity. There was up and down. All material things tended naturally to move downward, or to fall, and no one thought to ask why. The notion of absolute up and down directions persisted into the Middle Ages, when it was still invoked to prove that the earth could not be round. The first ray of light to pierce the mist of scholastic ideas about falling bodies issued from the work of Galileo Galilei.

George Gamow (March 4, 1904 – August 19, 1968), born Georgiy Antonovich Gamov, was a Soviet-American theoretical physicist and cosmologist. He was an early advocate and developer of Lemaître's Big Bang theory.
A distinguished physicist and teacher, George Gamow also possessed a special gift for making the intricacies of science accessible to a wide audience. In Gravity, he takes an enlightening look at three of the towering figures of science who unlocked many of the mysteries behind the laws of physics: Galileo, the first to take a close look at the process of free and restricted fall; Newton, originator of the concept of gravity as a universal force; and Einstein, who proposed that gravity is no more than the curvature of the four-dimensional space-time continuum.Graced with the author's own drawings, both technical and fanciful, this remarkably reader-friendly book focuses particularly on Newton, who developed the mathematical system known today as the differential and integral calculus. Readers averse to equations can skip the discussion of the elementary principles of calculus and still achieve a highly satisfactory grasp of a fascinating subject.Starting with a chapter on Galileo’s pioneering work, this volume devotes six chapters to Newton's ideas and other subsequent developments and one chapter to Einstein, with a concluding chapter on post-Einsteinian speculations concerning the relationship between gravity and other physical phenomena, such as electromagnetic fields.
