About this item
Everyone knows that Einstein was a genius, yet only a few people understand his work. In fact, he was just one of many brilliant scientists grappling with the deepest problems of theoretical physics during the first half of the 20th century. He may not have been the most important or influential of them—the point is arguable—but there is no doubt he was the most revolutionary. He almost single-handedly transformed the way the world thinks about light, matter, space and time. In the 60 years since his death Einstein has become a legend. The profound obscurity of his theories has contributed to this, as has his archetypal “mad scientist” appearance. His philosophical and political utterances—both real and imagined—are regularly referenced. This short book allows modern readers to separate myth from reality.
