    About the Author

    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

      Picked this up at the $1 spinner at Half Price Books. I had never read Asimov's non-fiction before. He's got a real gift for popularizing. This book covers the same material we covered in first semester college physics but he presents it in a way that helps you make connections between the concepts that you may have missed in class. He also does an excellent job of putting the progress of understanding of physics into historical context. Really looking forward to the whole series and I ordered a [...]

      A well written and concise description of our understanding of physics at the time. While there are a (very) few dated lines, this is still a solid introduction to the science.

      Although I took a full year of physics in college, I learned most of my physics from the three books in the Understanding Physics series by Isaac Asimov. As proof, I offer the fact that I scored a respectable 8 on the physics section of the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) that I took before starting the college physics class. My study of physics in preparations for the test began when I purchased and read the three books in the series. When I was in the physics class, I understood all of t [...]

      Although not a typical reading for everybody, Understanding Physics Vol. 1 gives someone a detailed and logical explanation of topics - historical background, biographies of physicists, derivation of formulas - regarding Motion, Sound, and Heat: considered as the fundamental concepts in Physics. However, the book is not really a "novel-type" on which someone would readily skip one chapter once he or she finishes it. In order to really understand, one has to return to previous topics and relate i [...]

      Very good as an introductory book to physics, this book shows plenty of background on historical developments from Aristotle onward. At times, biographical details of significant figures in physics' gradual growth are shared. One thing I like about Asimov's writing on science is that he explains the Greek or Latin origins of specific terms, what they used to mean in those languages, and why they were chosen to describe properties of physics. He also relates to your ordinary world and gives examp [...]

      All 3 volumes of understanding physics including this one by Asimov is a good read for students finding physics non-intuitive. It does not bog down students with too much of equations and formulas and explains the fundamentals with the least mathematical rigor.

      Though I didn't read this volume cover to cover, it helped me in high school Physics class.

      The Good Doctor presents a comprehensive treatment of every aspect of physics in this three-volume edition, which covers the field of Subatomic Particles in Volume 3 Electron, Proton & Neutron.

      I read this series of books long ago and lost them when I moved out of my parents' house. They were, by far, the best science texts I have ever read.

      Excellent simplification for the layperson.
