    Isaac Asimov
    Isaac Asimov was a Russian born, American author, a professor of biochemistry, and a highly successful writer, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books.Professor Asimov is generally considered one of the most prolific writers of all time, having written or edited than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards He has works published in nine of the ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System lacking only an entry in the 100s category of Philosophy.Asimov is widely considered a master of the science fiction genre and, along with Robert A Heinlein and Arthur C Clarke, was considered one of the Big Three science fiction writers during his lifetime Asimov s most famous work is the Foundation Series his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series, both of which he later tied into the same fictional universe as the Foundation Series to create a unified future history for his stories much like those pioneered by Robert A Heinlein and previously produced by Cordwainer Smith and Poul Anderson He penned numerous short stories, among them Nightfall , which in 1964 was voted by the Science Fiction Writers of America the best short science fiction story of all time, a title many still honor He also wrote mysteries and fantasy, as well as a great amount of nonfiction Asimov wrote the Lucky Starr series of juvenile science fiction novels using the pen name Paul French.Most of Asimov s popularized science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms Examples include his Guide to Science, the three volume set Understanding Physics, and Asimov s Chronology of Science and Discovery.Asimov was a long time member and Vice President of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly he described some members of that organization as brain proud and aggressive about their IQs He took joy in being president of the American Humanist Association The asteroid 5020 Asimov, the magazine Asimov s Science Fiction, a Brooklyn, NY elementary school, and two different Isaac Asimov Awards are named in his honor Isaac Asimov 2007, November 29 In , The Free Encyclopedia Retrieved 21 50, November 29, 2007, from enpedia wiki Isaac_As

    Back in high school, my physics course was a complete joke. Our teacher was a football coach who was more interested in that than teaching us physics.Then in college, I was forced to take Physics 101 and 103. I hated them with an undying passion. I didn't understand most of what the textbook was trying to tell me, the teachers were boring and monotonalI had a real mental block about pretty much anything having to do with physics. I thought I was a hopeless case.Then, a few years ago, I was brows [...]

    Understanding Physics, a compilation of three volumes covering (I) Newtonian mechanics and thermodynamics, (II) electromagnetism, and (III) atomic physics, is a fantastically useful reference for everything you probably learned in high school physics and then forgot. Like all of Dr. Asimov's nonfiction, it is written with the utmost clarity, and contains no mathematics more advanced than simple algebra. It is also very well indexed and cross-referenced.Dr. Asimov preferred to write about science [...]

    This is the first physics book I read, and I have gone on to read very many since then. I can't say that I wouldn't have chosen to become a physicist had I not read this book, as I was naturally drawn to physics. But for me, this turned out to be the perfect first physics book, because Asimov did a fantastic job of introducing the subject in an accessible way without dumbing it down like so many popular science writers would have done. He also does a wonderful job of mixing the history of the su [...]

    Even though it's written for the layman, it still a bit heavy for the average reader.

    This book is an overview of the fundamentals of physics. In three volumes, it covers classical physics (motion, sound and heat) Light magnetism and electricity, and modern physics (nuclear physics and electronics). In a very lucid and entertaining style, this great sci-fi writer makes a seemingly difficult subject understandable and riveting. The physics classes I took in college were oriented towards the problem solving. While there are some math problems involved to illustrate the science, it [...]

    This was the first physics book that I read and I greatly enjoyed it. I do not possess an extensive background in physics, but I did take an introductory course in the subject during High School. I was absolutely amazed with the ease of which Asimov translates the abstract and technical material in this book into everyday language. He also provides numerous concrete examples so that you are able to visualize the concept more concretely.I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking an intr [...]

    The Good Doctor presents a comprehensive treatment of every aspect of physics in this one-volume edition, which otherwise is presented in three volumes: Volume 1 Motion, Sound & Heat; Volume 2 Light, Magnetism & Electricity; and Volume 3 Electron, Proton & Neutron.

    This was originally my dad's book, a long time ago, and I couldn't keep my hands off it when I was a kid. It's an excellent overview by any measure, and far more accessible than any other science book I've since encountered, while still possessing breadth and depth.

    Great summary of basic physics, another great job Asimov!

    is it good ?

    im cool

    I liked it: Most everything in layman's terms.

    Good book if you want to understand the basic ideas of physics at a conversational level. Not a textbook or book for physics students
