    For 12,000 years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. But only Hari Sheldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future, to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last 30,000 years. To preserve knowledge and save mankind, Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire, both scientists and scholars, and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy to serve as a beacon of hope for a fututre generations.

    Alexander T. McMahon says: "The Foundation Trilogy is a True Classic"
    "A wonderful story of decline and emerging power."

    Story
    Where does Foundation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story is engaging, the delivery was sharp. It is certainly different from when I read it as a child. I already knew the story, but it kept me engaged nonetheless. The storyline and the narrator contributed to that!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the intricacies of the plot and how one could draw parallels into today's society and culture.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Because of some of the "foreign" names, consistency in pronunciation probably ranks high. His telling of the story feels consistent and rhythmic with the evolution of the tale.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many moments ... mostly when the underlying methods employed by the protagonists were revealed. Although I knew them from my past reading, it was just as exciting to hear them again.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the stories (the entire trilogy) and have long admired Isaac Asimov's way of spinning a tale that keeps one (me) engaged and wanting more.
