I don't know why I am always so surprised at how wonderful an Asimov story turns out .. and this was no exception.

There were a lot of seeds for future novels and stories by future authors in this story. The galaxy is settle by man, a dark age happens and man forgets that Earth started it all. A man is operated on and now he can learn faster then other humans. Everyone must die at a certain age, so others will have more resources and of course the main topic in 1950, the result of atomic warfare. The problem I had was that it read more like a thesis then a story. The whole story took place mostly in a couple of rooms and the main characters talked and talked and talked. At a couple of points we were lead to believe the main character was going to explore the forbidden zone, but it never happened. IA usually has great ideas that are best showcased in short stories, whenever he lengthens them into novels they get to boring or silly.
