Reviewed in the United States on March 28, 2020
Telling the tale of how Hari Sheldon, as a young man, took his concept of psychohistory from a white paper with Galactic Empire shaking possibilities to a concept he could develop into a science, Asimov fleshes out some of the questions raised by the earlier Foundation Series regarding Seldon’s past. The writing is better than in the original series, of course, but still not great. It does have some subtlety and it hangs together wonderfully well. It is a very enjoyable story, even if it’s end was telegraphed from near the beginning of the book, particularly if you have read “Foundation and Earth”. I highly recommend it for science fiction geeks like me!
