Isaac Asimov was one of our most beloved authors, and when he died in 1992 at the age of seventy-two he left behind an unapralleled legacy of thought and imagination. In a career that lasted more than fifty years, he wrote more than 470 books and innumerable articles and short stories, winning the hearts of millions of readers around the world. Perhaps best known as one of science fiction’s founding fathers, he wrote the novels that defined the genre and went on to become its all-time bestselling voice. But more than that, Isaac Asimov was one of the most wide-ranging minds of the this century, and he earned the nickname the Great Explainer for his non-fiction works on subjects ranging from the nature of the universe to Byron’s Don Juan. In these memoirs, he looks back on a long and very full life, and discusses subjects he has never before addressed. Exuberant, topically arranged, and richly anecdotal, I. Asimov shines with the author’s incomparable personality.
