Review of Coffee with Isaac Newton (Coffee with...Series) (Hardcover)

Reviewer: W. P. Palmer

This book is written by a well-known science communicator. The book has 140 small pages plus an index, with reasonable size print. It is thus not a detailed scientific biography, but in my view Coffee with Isaac Newton does convey the essential features of Newton's character extremely well. There are some useful insights in Newton's quarrels with other scientists and his religious views, with an amusing little twist on the final page. Altogether a good quick read!
