Recommended Book by Galileo?

  1. Nov 11, 2008 #1
    What book of Galileo, in its original Italian, would you recommend an Italian and physics student read? His Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems (Dialogo sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo) seems to be only historically relevant whereas his The Assayer (Il Saggiatore) appears more timeless and literary.
