5 Stars Out Of 5
June 15, 2011
I cannot recommend this book (and whole series) enough. I picked this book up for my son who was in 5th or 6th grade at the time. I just thought it might help him to understand the world that Newton lived and worked in. I grabbed it from his nightstand late one night and read half the book before I forced myself to put it down and go to sleep. The next morning I took it to the gym and finished it on the bike. I was laughing out loud so much that it drew attention from the other regulars there. They gave me quite a look when they saw it was a biography of Isaac Newton.
Kathleen Krull is quite a writer. She brings you into the world of great scientists and helps you to see how it shaped who they became.
Oh, by the way... my son liked it too :)
