What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“The second title in Krull’s Giants of Science series meets, and perhaps even exceeds, expectations set by the debut, Leonardo da Vinci (BCCB 7/05). Krull and Newton are a match made in heaven: she with her flair for capturing the flaws and foibles of the mighty, and he with his razor-sharp mind and abysmal social skills.”—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

“Outstanding. A multi-faceted portrait of a genius.”—School Library Journal, starred review

    This book highlights everything that happened in Sir Isaac Newto

    This book highlights everything that happened in Sir Isaac Newton's life. It talked about how he wrote his greatest accomplishment, The Principia. Newton was taught based on the teachings of Aristotle. Everybody knows about his three laws of motion. When he wrote this book, "he wouldn't sleep, he wrote standing up, and forgot to eat" (as said by the only eye-witness to him writing the book and if you want to know you must read this book). I also liked this book because it had pictures. When you read something, the picture can help you visualize what it's talking about. The book does achieve its purpose and that is to inform me about the important parts in Newton's life. It tells me about The Principia, his side passion which nobody knew about (I'm not going to tell), and his other famous book. He was praised by Ben Franklin, and Albert Einstein after he died. They looked back on him as "his fame continued to soar." This book is a must read if you are interested in Science and Math and if you want to find out who the only eye-witness who saw Sir Isaac Newton write The Principia. It was an enjoyment to read!
