Sir Isaac Newton has made more accomplishments to science and mathematics than arguably anyone. This biography addresses all his accomplishment in great detail. This book is geared towards a more mature reader, but that does not mean it could not be introduced into elementary schools. Teachers could use this book by reading excerpts in correlation to the given science lesson being taught. It is a great book to have in a classroom library for children to acknowledge and study past contributors to science. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521274354, Paperback)

This richly detailed biography captures both the personal life and the scientific career of Isaac Newton, presenting a fully rounded picture of Newton the man, the scientist, the philosopher, the theologian, and the public figure. Professor Westfall treats all aspects of Newton's career, but his account centres on a full description of Newton's achievements in science. Thus the core of the work describes the development of the calculus, the experimentation that altered the direction of the science of optics, and especially the investigations in celestial dynamics that led to the law of universal gravitation.
