Isaac Asimov authored over 400 books in a career that lasted nearly 50 years. As a leading scientific writer, historian, and futurist, he covered a variety of subjects ranging from mathematics to humor, and won numerous awards for his work.From School Library Journal:
YA In his 310th book, Asimov explains the secrets of the supernovas in his usual clear and concise manner. He gives the historical background of the different theories advanced by many astronomers and astrologers over the centuries. The "big bang" theory is discussed as the means of forming our universe. He goes into detail about the composition of the different types of novas, black holes, the makeup of the universe and much more. He relates past studies to those of the present and speculates on what science has yet to uncover in the years ahead. All unusual terms are defined carefully within the text. Asimov takes a complicated subject and puts it into an easily understood format for non-scientists. Pat Royal, Prince George's County Public Schoolu System, Md.
