About this book

Less a conventional biography than a cultural history of the interrelated origins of modern science, the concept of genius, and the phenomenon of fame. Well illustrated and engagingly written account of Newton's rise to become a cultural icon today more potent than ever.
'A good read, purposeful, well structured, and well researched . . . Quite eye-opening.' Roy Porter
