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.
