This is IMO, the best book of the Foundation Trilogy. The first one had some very interesting ideas, but short on story (It is just not very exciting when you already know the outcome) The second one dealt with the Mule with such amazing mutant powers that I was disappointed that Asimov felt the need to create this mutant out of 'thin air'. But it was ultimately necessary to cause enough problems so that we ultimately did not know that the outcome would be and that all the problems caused by the Mule would have to be solved by the 2nd Foundation.

Asimov continues to add great plot twists and the story is intriguing if not my favorite series it still has much to contemplate about destiny, politics and the human condition.
