Hi Aubrey -- thanks for a great review -- you beat me to it -- I read this book last yea rbut never found the time to review it. For myself I really enjoyed this book. I agree with the flaws you point out, but all things considered I found it to be a really good read that gave me a much better appreciation for the science and scientists of that era. And i have to say that I think "Mungo Park" is an amazing name (grin)
