Comments Asimov on Physics

  • Megargee

    In the 1950s and 1960s, Isaac Asimov, one of our foremost writers of science fiction, published a monthly column on scientific subjects of his choosing in the Magazine of Fantasy and Science. In the 1970s, 10 to 20 years after their initial publication, he gathered together articles pertaining to various disciplines and published them in book form, updating them as needed through footnotes. Previous volumes in this series include Asimov on Astronomy and Asimov on Chemistry This volume, Asimov on [...]


  • Anthony Faber

    As I said in my review of "Asimov on Chemistry", his first 5 collections of science articles from F&SF were being taken out of print in hardcover and they replaced them with these books that sorted those articles by subject (e.g. which science they're about). I don't have a problem with rereading or skipping essays that I've read, so I enjoyed this.


  • Dan Shuman

    Asimov's brilliance at relating both the profound and the obscure concepts characterizing physics through the ages made this an incredibly enjoyable read that I finished very quickly. The fascination stirred by his writing was more than enough to help me overlook the occasional cavalier way in which he describes some concepts (for example, mass and weight), his use of the cgs unit system (for which he can be forgiven, as an artifact of the times), and the occasional flagrantly sexist offhand ane [...]


  • David Kelly

    This book is a collection of science essays originally published in F&SF magazine in the 1950s and 60s. Although a little dated the articles are a great way to get to grips with some of the fundamentals of science, physics and offer an insight into the history of science.Asimov's warm and approachable style make reading this a delightful experience far from the more usual humdrum science texts and each article is interlaced with humor and insights into Asimov's life. Definitely worth a read [...]


  • Paul

    My first non-fiction book by Asimov. Very well written, and accessible to people of all ages. It contains several "lessons" in physics, each one presented with a comprehensive historical background. These books stimulated my curiosity about science when I was a teenager, and gave me an excellent primer for more advanced study later in college.

  • Jeff S

    Excellent read, a bit slow at first, but it got very interesting. I'd recommend reading it in pieces because it is rather dry at points.


  • Avi

    Just a collection of previously-printed and collected science essays. Kind of disappointing, although the updated footnotes were occasionally interesting.


  • Daniel

    The very best.


  • Hunchback Jack

    An excellent collection of essays. Although not a comprehensive treatment of the subject, Asimov make physics interesting and easy to understand.
