Review: Isaac Newton

User Review  - Walker Rowe - Goodreads

Good but he did not write enough about Newtons contributions to optics, classical mechanics (gravity), and calculus. This is because this science writer probably does not understand those topics. That's the really interest part of Newton's life, not that he headed the Royal Academy. Read full review
