The following is a copy of an introduction to a nonfiction, informative blog post from 1993 about science, from the book "Asimov's New Guide to Science" by Isaac Asimov. This book is a guide to science for nonscientists. In this volume Dr. Asimov tells the story of science in language accessible to everyone--and with an enthusiasm that will fascinate anyone with the desire to know more about humankind's most persistent and successful pursuit: understanding our universe and ourselves. In the first dozen chapters, Asimov uses a biography of science to trace the history of its development from ancient times into the present. In the next dozen, he tells the reader about important discoveries that have changed our understanding of how the world works. The final eight chapters explore various topics, including a subject each devoted to a different branch of science: astronomy and physics, biology and medicine, chemistry and geology, mathematics and statistics. This book is intended as a reference work for those who want to understand conditions in science today--and for anyone who has an interest in knowing more about any one of these subjects. Asimov brings a welcome human touch to this guide, from his frequent explanations throughout of the interrelationships among science, technology, and society to his speculations on the future. In the final chapter he tries to predict what lies ahead for science and humankind--and what might happen if we don't guard against dangers that threaten our existence. Throughout, Asimov presents a lively and absorbing account of science's progress through history. He explains how past discoveries were made and what form they take in today's world. He shows us how earlier generations dealt with their limited resources--and how today we still benefit from their insights and discoveries. He also speculates on what might happen if we continue to pursue our present course. In the final chapter, he discusses some dangers humankind may face as a result of our increasing mastery of the forces of nature. In doing so he describes those areas in which science is now well advanced--and those where it is still in an immature state. He concludes with a warning that, unless we learn to develop and use science wisely, we may cause ourselves a great deal more trouble than we need.

The following is a copy of an introduction to a nonfiction, informative blog post from 1993 about science from The New York Times. Every so often a person comes along who can change the way we think about a familiar subject. Isaac Asimov is such a person. He has made a lifelong study of science and his knowledge of the field is impressive. He writes clearly and directly for those who have little or no scientific background, yet he never talks down to his readers nor distorts complex phenomena to make them easy to understand. In this book Asimov explores an intriguing variety of topics that range from A to Z, as one might expect, from relativity theory and relativity's most famous advocate Albert Einstein, to zero gravity toilets aboard satellites and the zero population growth movement.
