Short but excellent

I've read other books on Newton that had more coverage of his life, contemporaries and time, but this book was an enjoyable, shorter version. In some spots the reader sounded mechanical although still intelligible. It would be a good book to refer to for forgotten facts about Newton.

An enjoyable audio book

I've read two or three biographies of Newton and was, therefore, surprised to learn even more fascinating facts from this audio book. It's very well written and narrated. Hopefully, they'll do one on Leonardo da Vinci soon, too.
