really liked it

For some reason this has always been my very favourite Foundation book or at least a close tie with Foundation and Earth. I seem to like beginnings and endings. The structure of the book is that of a "road-movie" and while developing the plot Asimow let's us get to know the planet of Trantor. And I'm always fascinated with the concept of psychohistory which basically is just a sociology model stretched trough time. I think many sociologists would have loved to have a tool to put their ideas into use for 30 000 years at least. I wonder how much Asimow was really influenced by Communism and meritocracy as an answer to that threat?
