A full vocal cast brings Sir Isaac Newton's impressive biography to life in Isaac Newton: The Scientists and Inventors Series. British classical actor Clifford Rose performs the primary narrative, gently illustrating the contours of Newton's life from his solitary childhood, through his boisterous undergraduate life at Cambridge, to his epoch-defining book The Principia, finally landing on how Einstein expanded upon his work. Through the life he lived and his scientific achievements, listeners come to understand the brilliant mind of the man who shook the world with his revelation of the workings of the universe.

Publisher's Summary

This audio biography vividly traces the life of a man who is regarded as the greatest scientist the world has ever known. It tells of his schooldays and earliest experiments, through the terrible plague years when he began the work that was to make him famous forever, to the publication of his book, The Principia, a masterpiece that did no less than describe the workings of the universe. Yet he was a modest man, who cared little for his appearance and detested argument.
©1976 David Allen (P)1976 Ivan & Inge Berg

The message occasionally obscured by the delivery

The voices were occasionally obscure, and the music too loud. These are trifles. The project was well done.

Excellent!

The music and voiced characters were absolutely superb. The biography was compelling and enlightening. The brief dry, intellectual description of Isaac Newton in the typical high school or university Calculus class does this consequential and erudite man a great disservice. Newton must be celebrated not just by an esoteric few but by all who enjoy the fruit of his work.

I was enthralled!!! Great Book!

it's a great experience, the story put me alongside with Sir Newton.

It was interesting seeing how he was involved with "optics" it was quite educational.

I felt sorry he was lonely, but it's inspiring how he kept busy. Isaac showed you can never give up on research.

Good summary of a fascinating man

I really enjoyed this. Learnt a lot. The voices held my interest. Yes, there is music that goes longer than I expected between some scenes, but I wonder if this is to suggest the passage of time.
