Introducing Newton : A Graphic Guide Paperback
Part of the Introducing... series
"Introducing Newton" explains the extraordinary ideas of a man who sifted through the accumulated knowledge of centuries, tossed out mistaken beliefs, and single-handedly made enormous advances in mathematics, mechanics and optics.
By the age of 25, entirely self-taught, he had sketched out a system of the world.
Einstein's theories are unthinkable without Newton's founding system.
He was also a secret heretic, a mystic and an alchemist, the man of whom Edmond Halley said, 'Nearer to the gods may no man approach!'.
