What People are Saying About This

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Isaac Newton may be a household name, but few people understand the foundation of this fame. In Newton: The Making of Genius, Patricia Fara has done the impossible—she has chronicled Newton's brilliance in a way that is simultaneously informative, comprehensive, and fun to read.

Roy Porter

A good read, purposeful, well structured, and well researched... Quite eye-opening.
