Issac Newton - the fascination of a Man and God,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Isaac Newton: The Last Sorcerer (Paperback)
A brilliant insight into a fascinating man. The author seems fair and balanced, not taking definitive stances on the various issues of man-genius, sorcerer-scientist, or straight-gay etc, providing arguments either way and being clear on when things are supposition. This results in a multi-layered and riveting account of a complex and driven character, portraying one of the greatest minds in human history as both mezmorizingly exceptional and yet humanly flawed. It's re-assuring to learn that one of the most profound minds of the Western world was just as petty in using his room-mate's towel when they didn't get along!
