    " Juve fiction...where my brain and reading level is now after having kids...maybe permanently... Anyhow, I always wanted to know a bit about Isaac Newton. He was a pretty interesting guy...apparently, pretty bratty. He was a major genius, though. Enjoyable read. "

    " Read this when I was teaching about the Laws of Motion,etc. and found it to be very informative, yet entertaining. The author uses humor to discuss what could be to some a very boring topic! "
