This s the first book in my favorite science fiction series of all time. Asimov has a beautiful vision and a perfectly crafted world. This book is short on dialogue but it tells it's story beautifully. A must-read for any sci-fi fan. 5 out of 5!!

The book that first opened my eyes to "hard" science fiction and made me realize there was more to the genre than blasters and spaceships. Dr. Asimov's concept of psychohistory has been so influential that there have been attempts to develop theories along those lines in real life. This is also (of course) the source of the famous quote from Salvor Hardin: Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

A classic! I was hooked on this series (this is the first in the Foundation series) as well as the Robot series. Yes, it's a bit dated for us modern readers, but I just love Asimov's writing style: the creativity, the character development, the politics. One of the best!
