Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This is a collection of the weekly science columns which Asimov does for the Los Angeles Times syndicate. It is organized around five themes: frontiers of early man, frontiers of science, frontiers of earth, frontiers of space, and frontiers of the universe. Asimov's extensive breadth of interests in all fields of science and his pervasive sense of humor characterizes this collection, as they have several earlier ones. Readers of all ages can find something of interest here even if not all essays will be of interest to all readers.-- Hilary Burton, Lawrence Livermore National Lab., Livermore, Cal.
