In Memory Yet Green by Isaac Asimov

Isaac Asimov, said The New York Times, "has probably done more than anyone else to give scientifically illiterate readers a feeling for the excitement and accomplishment of modern science." Now, in his 200th book, the celebrated author recounts his life - from his emigration to Brooklyn from Russia to his creation of the famous FOUNDATION TRILOGY. Here's what the reviewers say:

"Everything you need to know about how a genius evolves... a remarkable record... Asmiov has earned the right to be a phenomenon."  Algis Budrys, Chicago Sun Times

"The development of a unique talent... how he and his favorite early editor, John Wood Campbell Jr., of Astounding Science Fiction, came up with the famous three laws of robotics; how Campbell gave Asimov the idea for 'Nightfall,' popularly considered to bhe the greatest science fiction story of all time; how he almost wrote a book describing 'blak holes' years before they were discovered; how the idea for his great 'Foundation' series came ot him while he was riding a subway train... Asimov is a great storyteller and a first-rate explainer. Thos qualities shine through in this autobiography of his early years."  Chicago Tribune

"A detailed, candid account of his early days in Brooklyn, in the developing field of science fiction... like the author, it is ceaselessly informative and entertaining... it is hard to see how anyone could finish this vigorous autobiography and no be delighted with the dynamo that produced it."  Time
