About the Book

Francis Andrew has completed a monumental ten year task of writing appraisals on all of the published works of the late Sir Fred Hoyle. It is truly a worthwhile accomplishment as all of Hoyle’s books are now out of print. Francis Andrew’s work therefore offers a great service in preserving the thoughts of one the twentieth century’s greatest minds. Gihan, Weerasekara. Dompe, Sri Lanka. “ A Great Man of Great Science” covers all of Sir Fred Hoyle’s publications from his fi rst in 1950 to his last in 2001. Francis Andrew’s appraisal of each of these works is the next best thing to reading the original works of Hoyle himself. After reading these appraisals, one could well be tempted to take the next step and read the actual works of Hoyle. Siddhant Bahuguna. Uttar Pradesh, India. Francis A. Andrew has truly done a magnificent job in writing appraisals for each of Sir Fred Hoyle’s works. As Francis’ style of writing has done so much to make Hoyle come alive and inject into his works a relevancy for the twenty fi rst century, so it would be that even if readers of this volume were unacquainted with any of Hoyle’s books, they would surely be tempted to procure for themselves the original works of Hoyle.
