Prelude to Foundation

Prelude to Foundation by Isaac Asimov Book Summary

This daring story of humanity’s future introduces one of the great masterworks of science fiction: the Foundation novels of Isaac Asimov. Unsurpassed for their unique blend of nonstop action, bold ideas, and extensive world-building, they chronicle the struggle of a courageous group of people to save civilization from a relentless tide of darkness and violence—beginning with one exceptional man.

It is the year 12,020 G.E. and Emperor Cleon I sits uneasily on the Imperial throne of Trantor. Here in the great multidomed capital of the Galactic Empire, forty billion people have created a civilization of unimaginable technological and cultural complexity. Yet Cleon knows there are those who would see him fall—those whom he would destroy if only he could read the future. 

Hari Seldon has come to Trantor to deliver his paper on psychohistory, his remarkable theory of prediction. Little does the young Outworld mathematician know that he has already sealed his fate and the fate of humanity. For Hari possesses the prophetic power that makes him the most wanted man in the Empire . . . the man who holds the key to the future—an apocalyptic power to be known forever after as the Foundation.

Published in 1941, IAs short story about a miniaturized submarine with people inside used a laser to break up a blood clot in a artery, after passing thur the heart, we call this technique bypass surgery these days!

- Do NOT read this one first5 star

My modest advice, start with Foundation, read through the end of the series and get back to this one. Enjoy the purity of “Foundation” first then get back to discover Harry Seldon. Whether you follow my advice or not, this is a fantastic series you’re about to start/continue. Enjoy...

- Read this in West Chester county prison5 star

It was definitely an interesting book very well written I’m happy to have come across this novel it kept me very calm in my cell almost fought an inmate for trying to take my book without asking permission first

- Amazing series5 star

Incredible realistic plot and a fitting beginning to one of the most famous and well respected sci fi series of all time. Oh how I would love to see this done as a film series-but with such nuance and detail I am not sure it should even be attempted or could even come close to doing service to the books

- Nice book5 star

Very nice book

- Awesome5 star

Most awesome book ever

- Great Book5 star

If you are thinking of reading Foundation read this first! It puts so much about Hari Seldon into perspective, I don't know how people could have read Foundation back in the 1950's without this great prequel (written in the 80's). I actually think like this book more than Foundation itself.

- Prelude to Foundation5 star

Journey through Trantor. I really liked this book. I thought Hari's journey through the different levels of Trantor was the prefect setting. I also enjoyed Hari's make-shift family. If you are a fan of the series, read this, you'll enjoy.
