The fifth novel in Asimov's popular Foundation series opens with second thoughts. Councilman Golan Trevize is wondering if he was right to choose a collective mind as the best possible future for humanity over the anarchy of contentious individuals, nations and planets. To test his conclusion, he decides he must know the past and goes in search of legendary Earth, all references to which have been erased from galactic libraries. The societies encountered along the way become arguing points in a book-long colloquy about man's fate, conducted by Trevize and traveling companion Bliss, who is part of the first world/mind, Gaia.

From the Paperback edition.

An interesting end to the series
November 3rd, 2014
Overall a fun book, and any SF fan will enjoy it, if they enjoy any of Asimov's other works. Overall though it didn't perform quite as well as the other books in the series. The book did allow us to see more of the galaxy as it stands after so long under the Seldon Plan, and the twist at the end was a perfect finish for the series - I immediately went back and reread some of the original books (which I had read over a decade prior).
