E = mc(2)
Few equations have entered our consciousness with the speed and impact of Einstein's cosmos-changing formula. From the moment he published his revolutionary papers on his theory of relativity, humankind's view of the world and the universe changed forever, the latest phase of the modern age was born, and our horizons shifted.
We may know that Einstein was the epitome of genius, but how many of us know what his theory really means and what its realistic implications are? "Einstein And Relativity" presents a brilliant distillation of Einstein's life and work, his work's historical and scientific context, and offers a truly accessible explanation of the concept that shaped the twentieth century.
