Description
Interviewer: "What would you say was your greatest achievement?"

Isaac Newton: "I find it hard to differentiate between aspects of my work. To me it's all one. My journey from the cradle has been one in which first I learned from my antecedents, then I tried to emulate them, and finally I surpassed them. I cannot say that my entire work in optics is any more or less worthy than what I discovered about gravity or the behavior of objects in motion. Is my discovery of a practical form of calculus any more or any less significant than my telescope? I cannot say."

Presented as a comfortable chat between Newton and a time-traveling interviewer, this compact little book imagines what it would be like to spend and hour or two with the great 17th-century physicist over a cup of tea or coffee. The entertaining conversation is purely fictional, yet solidly based on biographical facts.
