Asimov’s New Guide To Science By Isaac Asimov. Asimov tells the stories behind the science: the men and women who made the important discoveries and how they did it. Ranging from Galilei, Achimedes, Newton and Einstein, he takes the most complex concepts and explains it in such a way that a first-time reader on the subject feels confident on his/her understanding. Assists today’s readers in keeping abreast of all recent discoveries and advances in physics, the biological sciences, astronomy, computer technology, artificial intelligence, robotics, and other sciences.

In the twelve years since the publication of the last edition of Asimov’s Guide to Science, the pace of scientific discovery has accelerated at a bewildering rate. New discoveries in physics have dramatically altered our view of the universe, while recent biological research has brought us new insights into the place of living things in it. Recent developments in artificial intelligence and robotics, in high-energy physics, and in cancer research—to name but a few—have spawned exciting new technologies (and businesses) that are revolutionizing our lives.

To keep the modern reader abreast of these new advances, the inimitable Isaac Asimov has completely revised and updated his classic work in science for the general reader, bringing this edition to the very frontiers of the latest research. He has written an entirely new chapter on the solar system, and there are new sections on everything from quasars and black holes to the latest developments in biological research and computer technology, as well as four sections of photographs and many line drawings.
But the aim of this magnificent book, acclaimed in its earlier editions as “the most exciting general account of modern science,” remains the same: to present the general reader with an authoritative, comprehensive account of modern science which is actually fun to read. For the alert mind seeking the key to technicalities in today’s science headlines, for the student eager to understand individual subjects in a meaningful context, and for the professional scientist wanting to keep abreast of advances in neighboring fields, Asimov’s Guide to Science remains the virtual bible of science.
