About the Author

To list Isaac Asimov's honors, as to list his books, would be excessive. Let it simply be noted that Isaac Asimov was the most famous, most honored, most widely read, and most beloved science fiction author of all time. In his five decades as an author, he wrote more than four hundred books, won every award his readers and colleagues could contrive to give him, and provided pleasure and insight to millions. He died in 1992, still at work.

If you're a diehard Asimov fan like I am, you'll probably like this book. The main story, "Gold," details a filmmaker realizing the second part of ...And the Gods Themselves. For that alone, it's worth a look.
Asimov's more famous collections are a little more fun. If you're becoming an Asimov fan, it's best to start with his early science-fiction and then move through his career.

First and foremost there are a couple points you must consider if you are reading this review as a means of deciding whether or not to read this book. First off: I did not read the first section of the book, yet. Secondly I intentionally read the second two sections because I am endeavoring to be a science fiction author myself. I can say I did not agree with everything Asimov had to say but his honors and body of work alone definitely indicate that his opinion carries merit.
Secondly: This would not likely be a good "starter" book for someone who has never read Asimov as over half of it is Asimov the author writing about science fiction and about writing science fiction.

That being said I absolutely loved this book. I felt it was a great insight into the way Asimov thought and wrote. It inspired me to continue to improve my writing.

Finally, a previous reviewer (who only gave the book 2 stars) made some comment along the lines that the book was just a collection of Asimov yelling about how great he is. I can understand how the obviously misinformed reviewer might hold that ignorant opinion. It is my personal assumption that the last two thirds of the book were mostly collected from Asimov's Science Fiction (the magazine) within which he would regularly write, as the editor, a letter from the editor. Frequently in the various pieces in the final two parts of the book Asimov makes obvious reference to the magazine in such a way that these pieces could only have come from Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. Bearing that in mind several of the pieces may come across as repetitive and several of them refer to the various words he had invented and his Three Laws of Robotics (regardless of whether they are "laws" that is what he called them and that is how they are known). However, this repetitiveness never once struck me as someone with an overly inflated ego.
