Excellent! Reading this book was time well spent.

Oliver Cromwell, English Civil War, King Charles I, The Plague, London's Fire, Halley's Comet and more are all put into the context of Sir Isaac Newton's life. Science mixed with History, Religion and Biography are held together by an engaging story which can be enjoyed by all ages. I highly recommend this book.

Well written and enjoyable!

I love this book, and read it because my 9 year old son said he enjoyed it so much! Newton is an amazing man and is to be looked up to. His accomplishments are incredible, and include more than gravity! I'm interested in his theological writings and thoughts as I never knew he had any...all I managed to learn in school was that an apple fell on his head and this led to his discovering gravity. The things you miss in grade school! Newton is a fascinationg subject for people of all ages and this book is a great starting point for adults who missed much of what went on in class. For children it is a far more accurate and rounded teaching tool than I ever received for those who are interested in science and in character building. Great to read aloud!

Highly Recommended

This book should be placed in the adult section at church in addition to the children's section. These days new books are coming out claiming Newton to have been a deist and to have dabbled in alchemy, while his Christianity has been completely ignored. This book blows the covers off of those myths. Newton is shown to have been a dedicated Christian believer as well as a dedicated scientist. Many quotes from his one million word commentaries on the Bible are mentioned. His relationships with other important Christian scholars of the day are explored, and his true genius are revealed. The book will even bring a tear to your eye. Highly recommended.
