Publisher's Summary

Isaac Newton’s main body of work was as a physicist and mathematician. He was a part of a scientific revolution in the 17th century, which would fundamentally change the way that people would see the world. 

In the field of optics, he would advance our understanding of light and how we saw it. In mechanics, he would create his famous three laws of motion, but it’s in physics that he became most well-known for his understanding of gravity and in mathematics, for his discovery of calculus and writing, perhaps, the single most important scientific book of all-time, the Principia, which is still referenced today.

Inside, you will find chapters on:

  • Born into Tragedy
  • His Life in Cambridge
  • The Start of His Genius
  • The Birth of Calculus
  • Newton Invents a New Telescope

Not that interesting for me.

Got through it all right, but....not that great. Love Audible a lot. Makes it worth the risk.

Fascinating story dully told. Felt like I was back at school and I hated school.
