For twelve thousand years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. But only Hari Sheldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future--to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last thirty thousand years. To preserve knowledge and save mankind, Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire--both scientists and scholars--and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy to serve as a beacon of hope for a fututre generations. He calls his sanctuary the Foundation.

But soon the fledgling Foundation finds itself at the mercy of corrupt warlords rising in the wake of the receding Empire. Mankind's last best hope is faced with an agonizing choice: submit to the barbarians and be overrun--or fight them and be destroyed.

One of the best books of all time.

The concept of psychohistory is so intriguing that I have long wondered if it, and its predictions, might be possible.

I was introduced to Issac Asimov by my wife. Good science fiction to me is plausible and believable. The Foundation Series is great science fiction. They are the only ones I've re-read over and over again with the exception of the complete Sherlock Holmes. Fun enjoyable and almost like reading history the Foundation is the best book (s) you'll ever read.
