If you are familiar with and like the foundation series this book will not disappoint.
Azimov has the courage to break with the formula here and the story branches out into wholly new territory.
The content, context and dialog are very convincing and the delivery is Azimov at his most human, and best.
He has the ability to put over very complex and serious ideas in a totally straighforward way and never indulges in
technical wizardry for its own sake, simply using technical ideas to explain the purpose of the plot.
Very few SF books illustrate a possible milestone in social and polital psychology in such an entirely vivid and readable way.
Better if you've read the foundation series beforehand but the essential background is given here and the book stands up perfectly well on its own. Any detailed description of the story would detract from the reading experience but get through the first chapter or two and you'll find it hard to put down until it's inspirational ending.
