Isaac Newton and the Scientific Revolution by Gale E.
This is great book for people wanting to start learning about Isaac Newton and
the turbulent times in which he lived. The coverage of his science is
squarely aimed at those who are studying physics or mathematics in high
school (or want to discover where the laws they learnt in school came from),
but equal weight is given to the historical and personal events which
shaped Newton's unique and towering mind.

Never at Rest by Richard S. Westfall
Never at Rest
is by far the most comprehensive and thorough biography of Newton to
date, written by Professor Westfall, one of the leading Newtonian scholars
until his death in 1996.
A.R. Hall's verdict was "That this is the best biography of Newton is
easily and truthfully said ... surely no
one is going to repeat Westfall's immense and shrewdly conducted task
in this century at least."

Isaac Newton : Adventurer in Thought
by A. Rupert Hall
Hall's book did not attempt to replace Never at Rest, but is a solid general
biography of the man, ands put most emphasis
on Hall's own interests of Newton's mathematics and physics.
