Einsteins orignal 4 papers, the most famous now known as the theory of relativity, took the worldwide scientific community by storm, and left the rest of the population scratchng their heads. This is the book Einstein wrote to bring his ideas to the masses. Concise, well written, comprehension does require some knowledge of mathematics and physical principles but is well within reach if you have half a brain and an attention span. I love it....Continua
In 1905 Albert Einstein published the most famous equation of all time, E=mc�, and the universe was transformed overnight. But how many of us have even a clue what Einstein's theories of relativity actually mean, let alone about their significance for understanding the nature of space, time and the world in which we live?
These are undoubtedly some of the most complex thoughts ever to emerge from the human mind and Einstein's inestimable genius extends to an ability to present his ideas cogently. Written expressly with the mathematically shy in mind - in the hope that it would dispel any mystery and provide 'a few happy hours of suggestive thought' - Relativity is a surprisingly accessible work. Published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Einstein's great achievement, it is the essential guide to one of the most fundamental discoveries of modern science....Continua
