Salt Lake City, UT – When you think of Sir Isaac Newton - you probably imagine the physicist, mathematician and philosopher who changed the way man understood the physical universe. But after years of discovery, Newton moved to London and became the Warden of His Majesty's Mint. In his new book, Thomas Levenson reveals another side of Isaac Newton - the genius that helped bring down a rising star of the 17th century underworld. Levenson joins Doug Thursday to talk about "Newton and the Counterfeiter."
