Isaac Asimov (Russian: originally Исаак Озимов, Isaak Ozimov; now Айзек Азимов; Ayzyek Azimov), was a Russian-born American author and professor of biochemistry, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books. Most of Asimov's popularized science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage. He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms. Examples include his Guide to Science, the three volume set Understanding Physics, and Asimov's Chronology of Science and Discovery.
