Description
Newton developed his most Famous theory of gravity as a result of an apple falling to the ground as he sat under the tree. He also discovered differential calculus, the nature of white light, his three laws of motion, and a revolutionary new telescope, Newton's work has become the Foundation for modern science. His discoveries play a part in almost every modern construction: from televisions and lasers to racing cars, towering skyscrapers, revolutionary medical apparatus and simple toys.

display_description "Drawing upon material found in Newton's vast library," the author tells of a man who "lusted after self-promotion and power" and was "driven to investigate everything that puzzled him, expended a vast amount of time and effort studying the chronology of the Bible, examining prophecy, investigating natural magic -- perhaps even the black arts -- and attempting to unravel the hermetic secrets, the prisca sapientia."--Publisher description.
