Sir Isaac Newton was an English physicist and mathematician who was a prominent figure in the scientific revolution of the 17th century. In his study of optics, he discovered that white light is made up of different colored light. This laid the foundation for the modern field of physical optics. In the field of mechanics, his three laws of motion are the basis of principles of modern physics. This work resulted in the formation of the law of universal gravitation. In the area of mathematics, he was the original discoverer of the infinitesimal calculus.
Newton led a double life, a scholar during his public hours and an alchemist and heretic theologian in his private time, away from the scrutiny of his peers. He wrote over a million words on theology and religion, yet few of these words were published during his life - his views were just too controversial for public consumption at that time.

Good for a short book, but woeful narrator!
The narrator sounds like he's in college and has never done audio work before. He stumbles across Joseph Kepler and repeats the name, read "Stephen Hawkins" for "Hawking", and said "the broader intellection community." The what?? Audible, I thought you had standards?
Good quick overview of Newton's life though.
