Asimov's Biographical Encyclopedia of Science and Technology; The Lives and Achievements of 1510 Great Scientists from Ancient Times to the Present Chronologically Arranged

Asimov, Isaac

Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, 1982. Second Revised Edition. Hardcover. Good. xxxv, [1], 941, [5] pages. Illustrated endpapers. Illustrations. Parts of DJ pasted to end papers. Cover has some wear and soiling. This revised edition has added 310 additional biographies. Isaac Asimov (January 2, 1920 - April 6, 1992) was an American writer and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. He was known for his works of science fiction and popular science. Asimov was a prolific writer who wrote or edited more than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards. His books have been published in 9 of the 10 major categories of the Dewey Decimal Classification. Asimov's Biographical Encyclopedia of Science and Technology is a history of science by Isaac Asimov, written as the biographies of over 1500 scientists. Organized chronologically, beginning with Imhotep (entry "[1]") and concluding with Stephen Hawking (entry "[1510]"), each biographical entry is numbered, allowing for easy cross-referencing of one scientist with another. Nearly every biographical sketch contains links to other biographies. For example, the article about John Franklin Enders [1195] has the sentence "Fleming's [1077] penicillin was available thanks to the work of Florey [1213] and Chain [1306] . . ." This allows one to quickly refer to the articles about Fleming, Florey, and Chain. It includes scientists in all fields including biologists, chemists, astronomers, physicists, mathematicians, geologist, and explorers. The alphabetical list of biographical entries starts with ABBE, Cleveland [738] and ends with ZWORYKIN, Vladimir Kosma [1134]. In the Second Revised Edition Isaac Newton receives the greatest coverage, a biography of seven pages. Galileo, Faraday and Einstein tie, with five pages each, and Lavoisier and Darwin get four pages each. Dutch writer Gerrit Krol said about the book, "One of the charms of this encyclopedia is that to each name he adds those with whom this scientist has been in contact."
