really liked it

This book continues the fluffy prelude of the foundation story. Like "Prelude" it provides some fun filler and entertaining stories to show how the theories we see in the Foundation stories have their beginnings. This book helps to show how psycohistory isn't so much a prediction of the future as it is an evolution of the most likely and desirable course for history to take.

I love the books but do not think they are high literature. They provide a nice link and give a human side to the persona of Hari Seldon. You can't help but think this is a wish biography on the part of Asimov. Especially his big birthday celebration and the few of Seldon as genius! All in all these books give you the fluffier stories we sometimes find in Asimov. Hidden in the fluff however are the inklings of the theories and ideas that enriched my life with the "Foundation series"
