When a plague epidemic caused Cambridge University to close in 1665, Isaac Newton, a young, unremarkable scholar, went to his childhood home in rural England. Newton began to construct the law of universal gravitation, develop the calculus, and make breakthrough discoveries about the nature of light apart from his colleagues and teachers. Newton's talent was soon acknowledged upon his return to Cambridge, and his reputation was cemented for all time. This biography also gives us a glimpse into Newton's personal life, which was as intriguing outside of science. He was a real genius with all too human flaws, quarrelsome, eccentric, and not beyond exploiting his position to suppress critics and enhance his own career.
