In this fascinating biography, Winchester brings to life Joseph Needham, the brilliant and eccentric Cambridge scientist who brought to light China’s historic achievements and innovations during a time when the West regarded China as hopelessly backward. Winchester touches lightly on these innovations, but prefers to concentrate on the colourful life of Needham who, along with being a nudist and communist, had a lifelong affair with the Chinese graduate student who sparked his love for China in the first place.
