This book starts the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov. If you have read some of his books, you'll like it. I have read some fo the other Foundation books, but I couldn't understand some things about the entire story. This book made it more clear to me. So if you have read some Isaac Asimov, then you should definitely read this one. And if you want to read about the Foundation and the Empire, this is the place to start!
