Summary
Gareth Stevens is proud to present a completely updated and revised edition of our highly acclaimed Isaac Asimov's New Library of the Universe. A re-worked text throughout reflects the latest discoveries and theories, and the most up-to-the-minute new photographs bring these volumes into the 21st century while maintaining the authority and accessibility of the original. Asimov's original work forms the basis for a fascinating mixture of science fact and theory combined with his highly readable prose style. The result is a series capable of answering, in an understandable and truly informative way, the multitude of questions children ask when they gaze skyward. The 12 revised volumes already in print will soon be joined by 18 more, covering all aspects of the universe and its exploration
