Review: Asimov's New Guide To Science

User Review  - Herman G. - Goodreads

I read this book (in Spanish) when I was about 15 years old. I decided to read it again, this time in English, and I don't regret it at all. This book should be mandatory in high schools. Read full review

About the author (1960)

To list Isaac Asimov's honors, as to list his books, would be excessive. Let it simply be noted that Isaac Asimov was the most famous, most honored, most widely read, and most beloved science fiction author of all time. In his five decades as an author, he wrote more than four hundred books, won every award his readers and colleagues could contrive to give him, and provided pleasure and insight to millions. He died in 1992, still at work.
