Publisher Comments:

Written and illustrated by William Rankin, "Introducting Newton and Classical Physics" explains the extraordinary ideas of a man who sifted through the accumulated knowledge of centuries, tossed out mistaken beliefs, and single-handedly made enormous advances in mathematics, mechanics and optics. By the age of 25, entirely self-taught, he had sketched out a system of the world. Einstein's theories are unthinkable without Newton's founding system. He was also a secret heretic, a mystic and an alchemist, the man of whom Edmund Halley said "Nearer to the gods may no man approach!". This is an ideal companion volume to "Introducing Einstein".

Synopsis:

Newton was arguably the greatest scientific genius of all time and yet remains a mysterious figure. Single-handedly he made enormous advances in mathematics, mechanics and optics, and by 25 had largely defined Classical Physics. He was also a secret heretic, a mystic, an alchemist — and the scourge of forgers as England's Master of the Royal Mint.

Synopsis:

Newton was arguable the greatest scientific genius of all time and yet remains a mysterious figure.

Synopsis:

Icon's unique flagship series, Introducing, continues to offer clarity to subjects and thinkers studied at undergraduate level in universities around the world.
