While others wrote more than Isaac Asimov did, no one can match the breadth of his writing. To many people, he was a science fiction writer, but in fact that was only a small percentage of his output. Furthermore, all of writings were well done. None were scholarly works by any means, but it is clear that he knew what he was talking about. A chemist by training, he wrote about all areas of science, history, literature, religion, and social and political commentary.

In this book, he has put togeth

A logical successor to Opus 100, this book contains a sampling from Isaac Asimov's second hundred volumes in print. Unsurprisingly, Asimov showcases his science fiction and fact, but half of Opus 200 is devoted to the author's non-science fiction, as well as his writing on classical literature, social studies, humor and even the Bible.

While there is much of interest here for both new and experienced Asimov readers, I found Opus 200 less engaging than its predecessor. Dr. Asimov includes the enti

I read Asimov's Opus 100 a few days ago, and the books came together, so... As in the last one, it's a great achievement to have written so many books but I prefer the original pieces (especially the science pieces) to the sum of the parts. However, this collection gets an extra star from me for including the full text of "The Bicentennial Man", for which I have some fondness.

A bit like a clip show. A recap of his second 200 books. Interesting, and helpful for discovering books by the author that you wouldn't have come across otherwise.

The Good Doctor presents short introductory reviews of each of his second 100 books. [books 101-200:]
