It's Been a Good Life

"It was a wonderful life, Isaac!"
My recent Asimov-reading-jag extended to this pared-down version of his three-volume autobiography. I'm not sure I've the stamina for that massive collection, but this was a charming presentation of the highlights.
Especially enjoyable is tracking his SF career - the influence of Campbell, his relationships with other writers and the SF community; all are particulalry interesting to read about.
As always, the good doctor was clear, engaging, enjoyable and thought-provoking. The poignancy of reading it (or, I suppose any of his essays) is the sadness that this unique voice has been stilled. I'm grateful for how much he did, and shared of himself.
