About this book

Not only a towering figure in his own era, Newton also left an immense scientific legacy, much of which still underpins key theories today. So if the principal thing you remember about him is that an apple fell on his head, its high time you learned a little more. 30-Second Newton offers a fast-track understanding of the key theories that formed the core of Newtons thinking, and looks at the roles he played over his long life, and at the network of connections he forged with his contemporaries. A team of expert authors assess his breadth and brilliance, offering the reader not only succinct analyses of his work on gravity, light, colour, and calculus, but also a broader picture of the key role he plays in the history of science
