Another worthy installment of the Foundation series.

In this book, the Second Foundation is introduced in the context of dealing with the perturbation the Mule caused to the execution of the Seldon Plan. While the First Foundation is science and technology, the Second is psychology and emotion.

I didn't love the characters as much in this book as in the previous books. It's maybe the worst of the series so far because of that, but the depth it adds to the Foundation universe and the intrigue surrounding the Second Foundation definitely make up for the lack of character loyalty.

I'm definitely going to continue on with this series; there's no reason to quit yet!
