Description

This unique format brings Sir Isaac Newton, the man who discovered gravity, to life in vivid form. An intimate look at his writings, correspondence, and life events, the Notebook examines his early life and education, his achievements in mathematics and optics, the publication of the Principia, and the long-term impact of his revolutionary theories. Illustrated with letters, journals, photographs, and more, Levys close look into the life of Newton includes his personal relationships, his schooling and work among colleagues, and his lasting legacy to science. Each spread is a self-contained story or anecdote, revealing some specific event in the scientists life. Newtons Notebook is bound like a personal journal, giving it the custom feel of a personal possession, and better than any biography, reveals the whole scope of Newtons life and times.
