Abstract:

Celebrated as the greatest scientific genius of all time, Isaac Newton is said to have rewritten the laws of nature after watching the legendary apple falling from a tree in his garden. Although known for rational thinking, he was both hermit and tyrant, and driven by an obsession to go beyond what we now call science to delve into the occult. This compelling biography sets out to reveal Netwon's hotheadedness and ego, as well as his deeply-held religion and his illegal practice of alchemy. Drawing on rarely seen documents, interviews with leading scientists and dramatizations of Newton and his contemporaries speaking in their own words, we learn about the real man behind the myth.
