About the Author:

Isaac Asimov authored over 400 books in a career that lasted nearly 50 years. As a leading scientific writer, historian, and futurist, he covered a variety of subjects ranging from mathematics to humor, and won numerous awards for his work.

From Library Journal:

Asimov traces the ancestry of humankind, starting with historical times and moving backward to find the origins of ancient man, hominids, mammals, chordates, microorganisms, and the universe. His discourse is capable, but superficial and unenlivened by fresh anecdotes, a la Stephen Jay Gould, or original ideas. Informed readers may be impatient with his introductory-level treatment of evolution and astronomy; others may benefit from his lucid explanations. Charles Pellegrino's Time Gate ( LJ 6/15/85) covered the same ground but offered controversial new theories. Beginnings is suitable, but not indispensable, for the public or college library.
